Torrent update: Republic of Singapore Air Force RSAF Alternate Runway Exercise

Breaking the speed limit along Lim Chu Kang Road, Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) F-16A Fighting Falcons from 140 Squadron thunder off the six-lane carriageway on full reheat during Exercise Torrent III in 1992.

The F-16As took part in three Torrent war games before the type was supplanted by the more advanced F-16C/Ds from Ex Torrent V onwards.

The pictures below show an F-16A demonstrating the touch-and-go manoeuvre. Note the second F-16A in the landing circuit in the image below.

I see these were the small tail F-16s. I wonder why they were retired so early.
