For the trade days, the Black Knights will be performing in the morning session.
For Sat you should see the Black Knights performing 2 shows, and Sun the Black Knights will perform in the afternoon session.

Info Subjected to change.

Those heading for the Singapore Airshow (SA) 2014 during the public days on the weekends, please do go at the earliest timing that you possibly can. The traffic congestion along Changi Coastal Road caused by the bottleneck at the junction turning into Aviation Park Road is simply horrendous. Quite a number of our guests missed their scheduled appointments as a result after getting caught stuck in the traffic congestion for approximately ~ 45 minutes at the final / last stretch of road several kilometres before Changi Exhibition Centre (CEC).

Thanks for the heads up, really appreciate it.

Hi guys ! It's my first time posting here. I'm visiting the air show and was wondering where can I go to, to do some plane spotting after I'm done with the air show.

Anyone has any suggestions ?

Some of my snaps onboard A350 XWB MSN3:


A total of 16 load benches (seen in the foreground) simulate electrical loads on the aircraft during test flights. Flight Test Engineer Station servers can be seen in the background.


A flight engineer analyses data at the onboard Flight Test Engineer Station.

Welcome! Can continue to stay around the Grandstand, Plaza Area for some opportunity shots at departure movements taking off and climbing out from Runway (RWY) 02C after all aerial acrobatics flying teams concluded with the entire aerobatic flying display routine. Minimum focal length of 400mm on an APS-C (1.6x crop factor) sensor is recommended.

Otherwise one can also head down to the open fields along Changi Business Park (CBP) Central / Crescent or Changi South Avenue 3 for opportunity shots of approaching aircraft (arrivals) at their short final before landing onto Runway (RWY) 02L.

For the C-17 Globemaster III, it will depart at ~12pm for the prep for the flying display. Before that timing, it will be on SAD and after ~4.30.

Thanks for the info ! Will check out the changi business park locations next time. Did'nt see your reply in time but I did stumble into some random spot that allowed me to take some aircraft landing.

Just noticed the Black Knights are all carrying under-belly fuel tanks. Why would they do this ? Is it to increase drag so that they can maintain a slow speed in flight ?

Centerline external drop tank filled with dyed diesel for the smoke trail.

Dyed diesel in pumped out a vent pipe located at the Convergent - Divergent variable type propelling iris nozzle where it's heated up by the exhaust and burned.
