An aircraft was about to take off for Hong Kong, but luckily no passengers or crew were on board, when a Singapore Airlines Airbus A330-300’s nose gear collapsed on Sunday morning while the aircraft was parked at gate A17 in terminal 3 at Changi International Airport in Singapore.

At the time of the incident only an engineer was on the aircraft.
The engineer was not hurt.

SIA said the Airbus A330-300 is registered as 9V-STG, and had last operated flight SQ835 which arrived in Singapore from Shanghai at 12.49am. The aircraft was next due to have operated SQ890 to Hong Kong on Sunday morning.

Another aircraft was used for that flight due to maintenance being carried out on the plane involved in the incident, said the airline. According to online flight schedules, SQ890 was scheduled to depart at 7.35am on Sunday morning, but took off instead at 8.18am.

No details why the aircraft collapsed are known. Singapore Airlines is fully cooperating with authorities.
