National Day 2010 Rehearsal - Display of planes

National Day Celebration is not completed without the display of the planes.

I have no idea what you call them but searching the official website gave me this answer...lol. The above display is that of a G550-AEW escorted by four F5 fighter planes. The G550-AEW is able to detect, identify and track aerial targets from a longer range. Now I sounded so smart...hahaha.

There's another short video on a chinook carrying the huge Singapore Flag but I will released the video on our National Day i.e. 9th August 2010.

You can read more about the display of planes from the official website of NDP 2010.

A display of planes that large must be a very expensive exercise, but I guess that National Day celebrations warrant that. They look just like regular fighter planes rather that aerobatic planes, which are quite exciting to watch as they dodge and weave through the skies over my head.

We are Singapore, We are Singapore.

This is our land, This is our flag.

After 16 years, I know a lot of these National; Day songs. Sort of miss them here.

Dong Ho, yes, the air show is fantastic. I could see the planes from my home too during last weekend, also another rehearsal. Will post the video another time.

Look out for the video of the fireworks. :)

Ann, yes they came out with a few nice and catchy songs during that year. The lyrics are easy to remember too.

Every year there will be a new song for the National Day.

This year theme song for NDP is sang by Corrine May.
