This year’s Singapore National Day Parade (NDP) 2015 is a significant and important milestone of Singapore’s history, celebrating 50 years of Singapore’s independence since the year 1965. As part of the NDP 2015 celebrations, the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) is going to give Singapore, a very big and special performance, the largest and most extensive air segment in the history of Singapore’s National Day Parades! There are 50 aircrafts of various types taking part in NDP 2015!
When I heard about our RSAF SG 50 FlyPast during NDP 2015, I was very excited to watch and capture the performances of our RSAF in action over Marina Bay. On Saturday 20th June 2015, it was Combined Rehearsal (CR) 1 and the RSAF gave a glimpse of what is to come on NDP 2015, practising their moves in the combined rehearsals, preparing to celebrate give Singapore a big birthday present with her airshow and flypast on 9th August 2015.
Beside the traditional State Flag flypast, there will be
- “Five Stars” Tribute to the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew executed by the RSAF Black Knights
- The unprecedented “50” formation comprising of 20 F-16s
- Aerial Bomb-Burst by RSAF Black Knights
- Aerial flypast segment comprising various aircraft
- Criss-Cross by RSAF Black Knights
- Combat Turn by a solo F-15SG
- Flat Burst: The finale performance by 3 F-15SGs

I was at the Jubilee Bridge for NDP 2015 CR 1 and it was a good spot to watch and photograph the RSAF SG 50 Flypast and aerial display! My Jensen Chua of Jensen Chua Photography managed to capture some awesome shots of the RSAF aerial display from the Marina Bay Sands Sky Park and it’s definitely a bird’s eye and it’s quite close to the flying altitude of the various performing aircraft! Maybe I should go up to Sky Park and get more different shots, angles and perspectives of the RSAF NDP 2015 SG50 aerial display!
With five more combined rehearsals before the preview parade and the National Day Parade 2015, I hope that I am able to capture more RSAF aerial display from other locations if possible and share with my readers.
