Singapore Airlines B737-112 9V-BFF

Line Number : 217

 

Original Delivery : October 31st - 1969 as 9M-AOW to Malaysia-Singapore Airlines (MSA).

 

Aircraft History :

 

31/10/1969 Malaysia-Singapore Airlines 9M-AOW

03/09/1972 Singapore Airlines 9V-BFF (seen here)

15/08/1980 Air Florida N48AF

27/05/1981 Mexico Air Force TP-04

 

Notes : This was the last and final -100 ever produced. Malaysia-Singapore Airlines would take delivery of 5, in a Malaysian/Singaporian/Malaysian/Singaporian/Malaysian registration order. 9M-AOU was line number 184, 9V-BBC was line number 194, 9M-AOV was line number 203, 9V-BEE was line number 212, and this one 217. In 1972, MSA would separate to form Malaysian Airlines and Singapore Airlines on their own, whilst Singapore Airlines would retain all 5 -100's and eventually all receiving 9V- registrations. All 5 of their -100's would serve with Air Florida as well, as an interesting tid bit.
