Singapore has deployed the first four of 24 Boeing F-15SG fighters that it has on order at the Mountain Home Air Force Base (MHAFB) in Idaho, USA.

This marks the start of training for the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s F-15 pilots at the base. They had previously been training with their United States Air Force (USAF) counterparts at the Seymour Johnson Air Force base in North Carolina.

Boeing rolled out Singapore’s first F-15 last November and the RSAF is scheduled to receive all 24 aircraft by 2012. They will replace the service’s fleet of McDonnell Douglas A-4SU Skyhawks, which were officially retired from service in 2005.
