Here goes the Part 2 of my blog post on the Singapore Airshow 2012 which sprung off to a rousing launch on a Saturaday morning with a visually stunning aerobatic flying display featuring commercial and military jets.
Singapore's RSAF F.16C + F-15G, Malaysia's RMAF Smokey Bandits and Australia's RAAF Roulettes displayed the adept skills required by the pilots to synchronise their jets in the team aerobatics display. I must say that the challenging aerial display up in the skies have wowed the speculators with lots of photo taking opportunities!
Yesterday's fair weather condition certainly enhanced the Airshow exhibition atmosphere, clear and sharp Aerobatic Flying Displays above the sky attracted the crowds of getting face-to-face with the power and glory of warbirds and graceful commercial aircrafts.
The Royal Australian Air Force Roulettes flying in perfect symmetery as they went through their aerobatic routine.
The RSAF's latest acquisition - the Boeing F-15SG Strike Eagle debuts in a aerial dance with the RSAF's Lockheed Martin F-16 during the flying display.
Royal Malaysian Air Force's Smokey Bandits in their twist and turn, wowing the spell-bound crowd. The Smokey Bandits gained their reputation for leaving behind a black trail of jet vapour when they perform. Four-point and barrel rolls, star burst, high-G turns and swooping loops were their forte. Like all jet pilots, their repertoire would not be complete without crisscrossing one another’s path at supersonic speeds.
The Singapore Airshow is an event that I looked forward to with much anticipation in the first quarter of 2012, with its promise of getting up close to some of the latest aircraft – both civilian and military and the opportunity to watch some spectacular flying displays.
The pride of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) and the others have shown how much Singapore has progressed as a military powerhouse in Southeast Asia since the late 1960s. Not only that, its pilots’ proficiency and flying skills have improved by leaps and bounds and nowhere is this evident than this flight demonstration at Asia’s largest and one of the three most important aerospace and defence exhibitions in the world. I am truly happy that i have come to attend this event! :-)
