    the location of the changi naval base is rather out of the way, if you dont have car or if they dont provide public transport, there will be difficulty for you to get there.

    I went to last year RSAF open house and have to put my backpack in the x-ray machine.

    It was not properly planned and many people missed the fly past of the fighter jet as we were still waiting for the SBS bus to bring us to the Paya Lebar airbase.

    actually it was just that there were too many people and that the security checks are quite thorough... so just have to be there real early...

    went last year too and its was great...

    Many of us came early to Eunos MRT take the free shuttle bus but in the end, we had to wait for 1/2 hour for the bus to come.

    I'm not sure how well the Navy open house will be arranged.

    As usual, shuttle buses will be provided for the period of the open house. Expect some delays, thanks to Osama, as certain security measures may be necessary.

    The pick-up points if its not changed from previous years should be at Tanah Merah MRT site. I think more information will be available when the time draws closer.

    The highlight should be the Submarines and the new Frigates that the RSN has acquired and prolly the only time that the public get to photograph it. I am still not clear on details yet .... stay tuned
