2012 JUNE National Runway Cycling and Skating, Paya Lebar Air Base, Singapore

17 June 2012 Sunday

I took the chartered bus from the Eunos Interchange to Paya Lebar Air Base (PLAB). There were not many people taking the bus. The journey took about fifteen minutes as it was a weekend traffic.

There was a massive queue to clear security and I was having second thoughts of going in to PLAB and the thought of going back to Eunos for breakfast.

Fortunately, the wait for the security checks took about twenty minutes.

I had to shelve my plans to take photos of the cycling and skating at the runway as it had already started after I cleared security and the sun was up making the temperature rise, there was no shades in that area.

The photos that I have taken here concentrates on events at the stage area and the RSAF aircrafts.

In conjuction with NS45, 45 years of National Service, the crew doing the arming demonstration for the F16D+ and Oerlikon 35mm anti aircraft guns are NSman doing their reservist training.

Everyday is a father’s day and not just this Sunday.

Cheers.

    I pity the sentries, baking under the sun. I was there with two kids, our virgin runway-cycle, and we love it.

      Hi Andy,

      I believe it’s a one hour shift and there is a tent shelter nearby for them to rest.

      Good to know that you enjoyed the runway cycling.

      Cheers.
