Black Knights - Jubilee Weekend Aerial Display

Marina Barrage
South, Singapore
August 2015

The Republic of Singapore Air Force's (RSAF) Black Knights Team performed a series of aerial performances over the Jubilee Weekend to celebrate SG50. Between 07 to 09 August 2015, six F-16C Black Knights aircraft put up a show at noon each day at the Marina Bay area.

About 10,000 people packed Marina Barrage and its surrounding area on Friday morning to watch the Black Knights perform. Merlion Wayfarer was one of the them.

The traffic jam was so bad that it was impossible for most drivers
to go any nearer to Marina Barrage. 
Most gave up and waited by the sea...

The festive mood rubbing off on families.
It helps if your car has a strong roof for kids to sit atop...

Locals and foreigners alike watching as One Singapore...

With the first droplets of rain, the umbrellas appeared...

As the display went on, the rain intensified into a downpour. 
Even the city skyline was no longer visible...

The six Black Knights performed 22 manoeuvres in the skies just off the Marina Barrage. The 25-minute aerial show by an aerobatics team from the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) was cut to 21 minutes due to the rain.

Happy National Day, Singapore!
