Wow, almost no representation from Europe or Russia. Looks like the highlight of the flying display will be the A-10 and F-111. Too bad no aerobatic team participating.
Just registered for trade ticket.
Any more update on the event highlight?
this time round got A10, my favorite ground support aircraft
Ok, intel from the industry source that is put up here at CS is spot on.
Here is the official programme from SA2010.

I heard there is 50% more queue lines for all its worth but not sure if its the queue to enter the premises or to the security checkpoints.
for a smooth transition, be sure to put anything thats metal into the camera bag and that means keys, coins and etc. before the checkpoint be sure to take out all possible x-ray sensitive equipment example cameras, flash, laptops, phones and put on the tray provided. Take your time as the last thing you want is to forget something or if you are rushing and simply put the whole thing into the x-ray machine, can only blame yourself if your camera/equipment malfunction.
there is also the $5 per person per trip shuttle bus as well. So i am thinking, are there more $5 shuttle buses or more free shuttle buses.

On An Aerobatic High
Be treated to an extra 30-minute aerobatic flying display taking place at this year’s Singapore Airshow over the public weekend on 6 and 7 February. This is in addition to the 60-minute aerial display.
See daredevil pilots pushing their machines to the limit, performing amazing aerobatic stunts that require extreme concentration and split-second timing. Be wowed by the sheer elegance of the spectacular planes and let the extreme flying machines take your breath away.
Aircrafts for the Flying Display
Making its last performance in Asia will be the F-111 strike aircraft which is operated by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). The F-111 will be lighting up the skies performing the trail-blazing "Dump and Burn".
In addition, the A-10 Thunderbolt II will be making its first Asian show debut. The A-10 is operated by the United States Air Force and will be part of both the aerial performance. Reputed as the “Tank Killer”, it can attack tanks, armored vehicles and other ground targets. Its unique design allows for high maneuverability at low speeds and altitude
Aviation enthusiasts, young and old, can also look forward to the first-ever aerobatic team showcasing the integrated air display segment by the Republic of Singapore Air Force F-16 Falcon fighter aircraft and AH-64 Apache attack helicopter in Southeast Asia.
Any advise/reminders to a newbie like me on what to expect and need to prepare for a decent first aerial shooting experience?
To all members here,
The F-111 performance will have a fuel dump where a big flame will be visible. My question is for such an exercise, is there a risk of a 'flashback' occurring?
TIA for all replies, comments.
I went to LIMA 2009, Malaysia, to catch the RAAF F111 and the RMAF MIG29N before they close shop.
The F111 was flying much lower in LIMA 2009 compared to the coming SA2010.
Some photos to share.
