52nd National Day 2017
Two years ago, Singapore celebrated its jubilee year, 50th birthday, at the Marina Bay platform. The RSAF (Republic of Singapore Air Force) put up a mind blowing aerobatic show featuring F16s fighter plane from the Black Knights. What we were missing was the Red Lions due to bad weather. Two weeks ago, we were back at Marina Bay where we stood at the same place but different spot awaiting for the National Day aerial fly-past. Great weather despite hot and humid. It was awesome sight when the Red Lions parachuting down right above us. In coincide with NS50 (50th year milestone of national service of Singapore), F15s fighter plane were used and flew by NS men pilots. The heart pounding moment was the entire aerial fly-past appeared so close to audience. Fantastic performance indeed! We did not stay for the fireworks as we had two years ago because it was a nightmare getting out of the place at the end of the firework show.
Happy 52nd birthday, Singapore!
