Held biannually at the Changi Exhibition Centre, the Singapore Airshow is the largest aviation exhibition and trade conference in Asia. Attracting both industry related and general public members to the event, the Singapore Airshow welcomed close to 30,000 trade visitors from more than 110 countries and over 20,000 public visitors at the Changi Exhibition Centre from 11 – 16 February 2020. The main highlights of the show consists of the Trade Exhibitions, the aerial display segments and of course, the Static Display Area. Due to the recent outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in Singapore, several of the static display aircraft were removed from the show listing, leaving us with a downscaled static show ground. However, what was on display at the Singapore Airshow 2020 was more than sufficient to make up for the unforeseen circumstances.
RSAF Display Area
The center piece of this years static display, the RSAF Display was filled with a variety of aircraft, helicopters and other assets from the Republic of Singapore Air Force. The main attraction for the RSAF has to be their brand new Airbus MRTT. The dark grey military variant of the popular Airbus A330 was the largest aircraft on display at the show grounds, gaining attention & awe from attendees as they enter the static display area.
Boeing F-15SG Eagle
RSAF's Boeing F-15SG were the outcome of the Next Generation Fighter Programme, where the RSAF evaluated several fighter jets to replace the old A-4SU Skyhawks. 2 F-15SGs were displayed at the static display area, one of which is the recently repainted "5583" F-15SG. This particular aircraft was seen previously in the special blue RSAF 50th anniversary livery 2 years back, and was also on display at the Singapore Airshow in 2018.
