4years ago, there were the Black Knights.

This year, it seems to be much less interesting. Not sure if there is anything REAL interesting for us to make an effort to go there to shoot.

There are only THREE participants for the flying display? What a letdown!

Go down for the USAF F22 as this might be the first and last time to see it here in Singapore.

The USAF A10 during the last SA2010 was the first and last showcase here in Singapore.

We have a tweet from Dzirhan who is a Malaysian defence correspondent that six RMAF MIG29N will be performing at SA2012. This will be the first and last time for the RMAF MIG29N too.

VIDEO: vintage TV show about RSAF

By Greg Waldron on January 27, 2012 3:45 PM


While researching my features that will run in Flight International the week of the Singapore Air Show, I came across this cool retro video of a 1988 Singapore TV series about the RSAF.  There is some good footage of a number of types, including the F-5 and A-4. Surprisingly the F-16 doesn't make an appearance - perhaps at the time this type was deemed too sensitive.

For fighter aficionados this year's show looks like pretty slim pickings. The flying display list is short: F-15SG, F-16 C/D, RAAF Roulettes, and the Blair Rebel 3000. In year's past the show offered hardcore displays by aircraft like the F-111, the B-1B, A380, and even Russian types. There could be more flying displays than what's currently listed (I've heard the RMAF's MiG-29 equipped Smokey Bandits will be at the show) but the show organizer seems agonizingly slow about updating the site.

At least the 787 will be on static, but what of Airbus? The RAAF isn't sending a KC-30A, the A400M is needed for tests in Europe, and the A380 is, well, a bit common these days.

The Smokey Bandits to soar in Singapore skies
Monday, January 30, 2012 - 18:38
by Cynthia Blemin

KUALA LUMPUR: For the first time in its 53 years history, the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) will be sending an aerobatics team to the Singapore Airshow.

Popularly known as "The Smokey Bandits", the flight of MiG-29N aircrafts from No 17 Squadron base in Kuantan has been invited by their Singapore counterpart to showcase their flying maneuvers at the airshow to be held at the Changi Exhibition Centre between Feb 14 and 19.

The Malaysian Armed Forces and Singapore Armed Forces (RSAF) have regularly engaged in bilateral and multilateral exercises in the past but this is the first time the RMAF MiG29s will be deployed to the neighbouring island.

A press statement issued by RMAF said "RSAF have in the last two series of Lima, sent their fighters and helicopters to perform in Langkawi. The RMAF also feels it is high time we returned the favour to our southern neighbours."

The five-men aerobatic team will be led by commanding officer Lt Col Mior Nor Badrishah Mohamad, callsign "Ghost", head of training Capt Mohd Azizi Musa "Skinner", executive officer Maj Razali Ahmad Jumali "Vendor", squadron safety officer Maj Nasruddin Khalid "Digi" and standards officer Maj Azri Ahmad "Adiq".

The team travels with a total of 31 engineering technical specialists have performed on numerous occasions at the bi-annual Langkawi International Maritime & Aerospace Exhibitions held over the years and the Brunei Defense Exposition 2011 (Bridex 2011).
Audience at the airshow can look forward to maneuvers done in formation and solo displays, which will be performed in unison to ensure a compact and thrilling sequence.

The term ‘smokey bandit’ was originally coined by visiting foreign air force pilots in reference to the black cloud of smoke generated by the MiG29’s Klimov RD33-3 engines when operating in full military thrust.

In 1997, the RMAF’s MiG-29 squadron made its first appearance in the Langkawi International Maritime and Air Show (Lima 97) in Malaysia and has since become the main attraction at Lima air shows.

The squadron was recently crowned Squadron of the Year 2011 by the Royal Malaysian Air Force and received the 2011 Malaysian Armed Forces Readiness Award.

Singapore Air Show revs up

By Greg Waldron on January 31, 2012 3:23 PM

Spotted some Singapore Air Show posters at Changi Airport MRT station. Quite like the clever 'Top Fun' movie theme they've adopted for the show, although those two Leopard II tanks look as if they are about to run down that family.

Also checked the Air Show web site and so far there is no indication that the two F-22s shown in the poster will be performing a flying display. The F-35 is listed on static, but don't be fooled: it will likely be the 1:1 model version that Lockheed trots out for air shows. My colleague Firdaus (@fhavg) just told me that SIA's last Boeing 747-400 will be on static at the show. That's cool.

Flightglobal will have a big team at the show and a stand as well. We'll be writing plenty of stories for the web site, as well producing an interactive daily. Also keep your eyes out for our show report on Thursday with all the big and small stories from the show.
