|Tweet @SGAirshow: #SGAirshow will feature some of the most popular and latest aircraft taking part in the Airshow for the first time|
SINGAPORE, Feb 8, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - The Singapore Airshow will once again feature spectacular flying displays, and also one of the widest range of business, commercial, and military aircraft at the static aircraft display area that will captivate and thrill visitors at the Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC) during its public weekend on 20 and 21 February 2016.
In addition, there will also be a host of fun activities for fans of all ages and interests, while cosplayers in their fantastic costumes, and the Singapore Airshow's official mascots, Captain Leo and his best friend Captain Leonette, will be on hand to greet visitors and have their photos taken.
Breathtaking Aerial Stunts
One of the key highlights in the aerobatic flying display will be the Republic of Singapore Air Force's integrated aerial display team, comprising an F-15SG fighter jet and an AH-64D Apache attack helicopter. They will perform three integrated and eight solo manoeuvres, demonstrating power and agility. Their routine includes the Vertical Punch, a new manoeuvre that is being performed for the first time: The Apache AH-64D attack helicopter will pull up to the skies, and flip around as if performing an aerial ballet, before meeting the F-15SG flying in from the opposite direction. The F-15SG fighter jet will then punch through the clouds in a spectacular vertical climb.
The exhilarating line-up for this year's aerobatic flying display will also see the return of the Black Eagles from the Republic of Korea Air Force, known for their jaw-dropping aerobatic stunts. The Black Eagles will be looking to surpass their breathtaking performance in 2014 by bedazzling the crowds at Singapore Airshow 2016 with 3 more manoeuvres added to their repertoire.
In addition, some of the magnificent aircraft that will take to the skies include the French Air Force's Dassault Rafale, the U.S. Air Force's C-17 Globemaster III and F-16C/D Fighting Falcon, and the Su-30MKM from the Royal Malaysia Air Force.
Get up close and personal with the latest aircraft
The Republic of Singapore Air Force Black Knights will showcase one of their F-16C aircraft, in its gleaming crescent and stars livery, at the static aircraft display. Aviation fans should not miss this rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the aircraft. Other key highlights of the static aircraft display include two USAF F-22 stealth fighters and the Airbus A400M - a modern military transport plane using the latest fly-by-wire flight control system - all of which will be taking part at the Singapore Airshow for the first time. Visitors can also look forward to some of the latest luxury business jets from Bombardier, Embraer and Gulfstream as well as other new aircraft and helicopter models such as Airbus H145 and Bell 505, all also appearing for the first time at the Singapore Airshow.
Young and aspiring pilots will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the men and women who have chosen a career in the skies at the Meet-the-Pilots sessions. In addition, The Captain's Den, a new e-store which offers a wide range of Singapore Airshow memorabilia has been launched. The popular Captain Leo and Captain Leonette plush toys, Singapore Airshow's official mascots, and an expanded range of Singapore Airshow-themed gifts including model planes, umbrellas, mugs and caps is available for purchase at The Captain's Den, and on-site during the Singapore Airshow.
Mr Leck Chet Lam, Managing Director of Experia Events, said: "The Singapore Airshow has always been an exhilarating experience that offers something for fans of all ages and interests.
