2015 AUG RSAF Black Knights, Marina Barrage, Singapore

3 August 2015 Monday

030815 (Mon) Media Day

After taking photos of the RSAF Black Knights performing at the 2015 Avalon Airshow Australia and the 2015 LIMA Langkawi Airshow Malaysia, I am finally able to take photos of the RSAF Black Knights on homeground here in Singapore.

I was proud to see the Australians and Malaysians enjoying the RSAF Black Knights aerobatic display during the airshows, thousand of miles away from home and flying the Singapore flag.

Today’s RSAF Black Knights performance is for the RSAF personnel, Advisory Council on Community Relations in Defence (ACCORD) members and also the media day with the guest of honour, Minister of Defence Dr Ng Eng Hen.

Light rain and cloudy weather for the whole morning at the Marina Barrage and it was good to know that the aerobatic display was not cancelled.

A bad day for photography but at least I am able to get some shots instead of coming out empty handed after travelling to the Marina Barrage.

The RSAF Black Knights will perform during the three days jubilee weekend at 1200 hours for about 25 minutes and we will see them again for the last time at the 2015 NDP on the 9th August 2015.

Do note that there will also be a picnic by Families for Life on the 7th and 8th August, 0800 -1230 hours, at the Marina Barrage.

080815 (Sat) Day Two Jubilee Weekend.

The Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long came down to the Marina Barrage for the RSAF Black Knights Aerobatic Display Day One Jubilee Weekend. However, it rained for that day performances.

It rained in the morning and stopped at around 1000 hours when I was at the Marina Barrage, the sun did came out but there was no blue skies in sight for today.

The RSAF Black Knights only did a few aerobatic stunts due to the low visibility.
