    You're welcome!

    The Jets should be in the air by 2pm, and the entire display should last 18 minutes; meaning that if you wish to take photographs, you should come before 2pm! As mentioned earlier, as the event is around the Wavehouse area, you should be able to get better shots over there.

    Cheers!

    Anyone know where they will be parking or if there will be any practice session; just curious.

    I guess the best time to enter Siloso beach is ard 12pm or earlier cos based on what I've experienced during the Flutag last year, it took me more than 1 hr plus just to reach the beach by monorail...and by then it's fully crowded..

    Breitling Jet Team to fly over Siloso Beach this weekend
    By Bryant Chan | 7 March 2013 Thursday | 4:53 PM

    Aviation enthusiasts have a chance to catch the aerobatic antics of the Breitling Jet Team this weekend.

    First formed in 2003, the Breitling Jet Team is the largest professional civilian aerobatics team in Europe, comprising of seven men with over 50,000 hours of flight time between them.

    The team will perform a 20 to 25-minute display of aerobatics in the skies above Siloso Beach in Sentosa at 2 pm on March 9. It is the team's maiden performance in Singapore.

    Previously having performed at locations all over Europe, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey and Lebanon, the team is now flying across Southeast Asia as part of a five-week tour. Singapore marks their third stop after the Philippines and Indonesia.
