Singapore Airshow 2016

Its better late than never. Hence, here it is, late. 😀

Singapore airshow happened between 16th to 21st of Feb and I got my tickets well in advance. I love this event because I get to see the aerial shows and the participating crafts up-close on the ground along with newest technologies in combat technology (I don’t follow them though). Another part I wonder as usual, how efficiently this event is organized. Given the massive amount of public involved, I hardly faced any waiting time. Kudos to them.

Generally, I used to stick to the morning aerial show but this time, I felt I had time and decided to hang around till the afternoon aerial show which was even better. Little less I realized my full-frame dslr with 24-105 didn’t get me enough of what I wanted. Its a shame that I didn’t go for a better suitable lens.

The air was crisp and the stunts gave goosebumps often. I, wholeheartedly envied the pilots and their skills and wished they knew how much the crowd and enjoyed and cheered. This is one of those definite moments where I wish I-should-have-been-there.

As part of the flying display Programme – In the morning, Boeing F-15SG & Boeing AH64D Apache (Republic of Air Force), Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon (US Air Force) and Dassault Rafale (Armee De l’ Air) which was my personal favorite.
In the afternoon, Sukhoi Su-30MKM (Royal Malaysian Air Force), Airbus A350 XWB (didn’t happen that day – I believe), Boeing C-17 Globemaster III (US Air Force) and Black Eagles (Aerobatic Team, Republic of Korea Air Force) which was the highlight of the whole event.

Here are some pics.
