Republic of Singapore Air Force promises a spectacular performance

Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) will be putting on a special performance for our nation’s big birthday celebration. This year’s air performance will feature 50 aircraft — the largest number to do so at the NDP — possibly just for SG50.


While the aerial display is one of the most anticipated segment at any National Day Parade (NDP), the display by the official aerobatics team for RSAF — the Black Knights — will happen over the long weekend this year. The Black Knights will put up a full 22-manoeuvre show for the three-day celebration on 7, 8, and 9 August at 12 noon.

And they have been giving us tiny peeks of their segment with a series of pictures and videos on the RSAF Facebook page.

Phew. That video just gave us vertigo.

Now that’s some snazzy editing and background music.

A preview of the aerial show

With the promise of the biggest show ever from Black Knights, here are some aerial acrobatics that you can look forward to.

The Black Knights are full-time operational pilots who have trained diligently for almost a year.

“Five Stars” Tribute Aerial Flypast

The Black Knights will start with “5 stars” in tribute to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew. This fomation ignifies the five stars on Singapore flag: democracy, peace, progress, justice, and equality.
