    can't reveal too much... but they WILL fly pass tampines wafer fabrication park (somewhere there) during their rehersal and will land near the wafer fab. park
    Just curious, I used to work in the tampines wafer fab park area. Never really noticed any clear landing sites unless u refering to seletar airbase area near jalan kayu..?

    IMO, other countries, the flying are always quite low.
    Singapore like always fly very high one...like the AA2006..I need to use 500mm..
    But if this weekend they fly low, then my 80-200mm will do the job or just
    snap on a TC..

    IMO, something like 400mm would be something more reasonable. Or, you will have to crop hell of a lot. I will bring a 100-300F4 and see if I can get a 1.4xTC to go with it. I guess that should be good enough.
    I love big car, big house, big lenses, but small apertures.

    either a 100-300/100-400/70-200+tc should be "safe" enough for security matters.

    As wat they said, depend on the aircrafts fly over distance. (12x optical zoom) 36 - 432mm equiv.. should be no problem if fly close to you.. happy shooting

    The shots in US were very very up close. In singapore the aircrafts for safety reasons would be flying at a long distance and 70-200 would not make it. You need at least a 100-400 range. Those who shot aerospace 2006 will know what i mean.
