Circuit breaker Day 5 pix: Last Republic of Singapore Air Force RSAF E-2C public display

Group photos like this one are a definite no-no during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

This group photo of the crew of Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Grumman E-2C Hawkeye 014 is special because it marks the last time the AEW aircraft was displayed to the public. The crew posed for a group photo on 31 August 2008 on the last day of the RSAF Open House at Paya Lebar Air Base. It would be interesting to know who the crew members are and whether they're still with the RSAF 12 years on.

When Hawkeye 014 made its last public appearance, the RSAF allowed visitors to step aboard to take a look inside the cabin though no pictures were allowed inside.

The E-2Cs that served with RSAF 111 Squadron have been replaced by the Gulfstream G550 AEW.
