Yes indeed. Maybe it is due to check before returning to lessor or new owner. SQ has a habit of storing their fleet and flying them back to SIN for heavy check before sending them to desert.

Looks like both SRQ and SRP have found a new home or being leased out. SIA actually do not fly their stored planes back to SIN for maintenance or heavy checks unless they are restored to flying as otherwise they just be sitting in the desert and there's no point in any heavy checks before being stored.

Both SRQ & SRP are under sales check
