The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) has unveiled a special livery for its Boeing F-15SG in commemoration of its 50th anniversary at the Singapore air show. The city-state’s president Halimah Yacob was present to conduct the unveiling.
Located on the static display, the special livery F-15SG is painted in sky-blue, with streaks of white running across the body. The tail also has a ‘50’ painted on it.
"Singapore’s status as a vibrant air and trade hub today are founded upon the security provided by a strong defence force,” said Yacob. "It is not by chance that Singapore has developed rapidly over a few decades into our modern, bustling metropolis.”
This year's Singapore air show coincides with the RSAF's 50th anniversary.
"The systems and capabilities that the RSAF have inducted over the years provide us with a range of capabilities that can be useful in a wide range of scenarios to meet the demands of both conventional and unconventional threats in an evolving security landscape," says RSAF’s Chief of Air Force, Maj Gen Mervyn Tan. "As a small country with no strategic depth, Singapore will always need superior air capabilities to protect its interests and borders."
