At 4am on Wednesday, November 29, a Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200 was damaged by fire as it was being towed to Terminal 3 at Changi Airport in Singapore.
The aircraft was empty at the time and no passengers or cargo was on board. It was being towed to a departure gate for its next flight when the tug caught fire. It is unclear how much damaged has been suffered by the aircraft as a result, as available photos only show the blackened nose area and nose gear. A member of the towing crew, in the cockpit at the time of the incident, evacuated the aircraft via an emergency exit.
The incident is being investigated.
