Plane spotting pictures: Singapore Airlines Cargo Boeing 747-400F freighter 9V-SFQ

This week’s plane spotting photo comes from the tarmac at the Bengaluru International Airport. I was shocked at how fast the fog rolled in an obscured visibility.

In the dead of night around 3am, Singapore Airlines Cargo Boeing 747-400F 9V-SFQ freighter was towed out to and started up on the taxiway (thanks to poor visibility) to perform her flight.

Unlike most cargo aircraft, this Boeing 747 freighter is new, less than four years old. The lack of the stretched upper deck seen on passenger versions of the 747-400 indicates this is not a BCF (Boeing Converted Freighter) but an original.
