RSAF Black Knights Golden Jubilee Airshow

The “Black Knights” is the official aerobatics team of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) featuring six F-16C Fighting Falcons in formation flight.

On the occasion of 50 years of independence of Singapore, Black Knights wowed the audience over the jubilee weekend by performing 22 maneuvers off the coast of southern Singapore. Best vantage point to see the airshow was Marina Barrage. No doubts Marina Barrage was filled upto the brim with people flocking over to see the amazing show. However the show could be viewed from Garden by the bay East and Marina South Pier MRT.

The show has held on 7,8 and 9 August at 12 noon and lasted for over 25 minutes each day.

Needless to say I watched the show on all three day. Black Knights won my heart <3
Here is a snap shot of some of the aerial stunts performed by the team.

      That’s nice to hear. Its good if they are promoting the skills. Indian parents do not (normally) want to their kids to get into some dangerous/life threatening activities.

      You are never too old to see or do something beautiful 🙂
