SGAirshow16: Pre-show walkaround

February 14, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

Work and a much-needed vacation will keep me from attending the official days of this year's Singapore Airshow — an event I'd attended religiously since the year 2000 edition of the show (then know as Asian Aerospace).

Nevertheless, I managed to squeeze out some time this arvo to do a quick walk around on what was available then (not much really) on the show grounds before the displays will be ringed up with annoying barricades in the next day ot two.

The Raptors have landed! Making its debut in Singapore are two F-22A Raptors from 525th Fighter Squadron. Known as the Bulldogs, the unit is based out of Elmendorf AFB, Alaska, but is currently operating 12 F-22s from Yokota Air Base in Japan as part of a theatre security package amidst tensions in that region. © Roy Choo
