S’poreans react to SIA plane collapsing at Changi Airport

Posted on 11 October 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


The nose gear of a Singapore Airlines (SIA) plane collapsed on Sunday morning, 8am, Oct. 11, at Changi Airport.

Photos showed the nose of the plane tilted downward on the tarmac next to an aerobridge. The front door of the plane looked like it was torn off.

There were no passengers or crew on board at the time when the incident happened.

The plane had arrived in Singapore from Shanghai at 12.49am as SQ835. The aircraft was next due to have operated SQ890 to Hong Kong on Sunday morning.


Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “Must be linked to AHPETC.”
Liew Chen Qiang, 44-year-old lift maintenance mechanic


sian-half-uncle “This proves nothing is perfect. Even the best government in the world.”
Zho Zeng Hu, 63-year-old free newspaper distributor


happy-bird-girl “After 50 years of nation-building, some things are bound to break down from old age.”
Lao Gu Dong, 18-year-old convenience store worker
