Circuit breaker Day 45 pix: Singapore Aviation Art

BAC Strikemaster jet trainers operated from Changi Air Base in 1975, which was the year the Singapore Air Defence Command (SADC) was renamed the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).

Miss flying?

Here are some postcards from BAE Systems that capture Singapore's aviation history. The postcards were distributed as part of BAE System's campaign to sell the Eurofighter Typhoon multirole fighter jet to Singapore.
Singapore used the British-built Hawker Hunter Mk.74S fighter/ground-attack aircraft for over 20 years from 1970. This year marks the 50th year of RSAF fighter operations. 
BAC Lightnings of Royal Air Force No. 74(F) "Tiger Squadron" operated from Tengah between 1967 and 1971.
Eurofighter Typhoon over Singapore.
Red Arrows over Changi during the Asian Aerospace air show in 1996. The Reds were then led by Squadron Leader John Rands.
Singapore Airlines acquired the Airbus A300B4-203 in 1981- the same year that Paya Lebar became an RSAF air base.
