AsiaOne | Friday, Jul 26, 2013

SINGAPORE - Visitors to the Singapore Airshow 2014 will be treated to a visual feast by the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Black Knights aerobatics team as they perform their precise manoeuvres and tight formations using six of RSAF's F-16C Fighting Falcons.

The F-16C Fighting Falcon is one of the most sophisticated and advanced multi-role fighter aircraft in the world today.

A new paint scheme for the Black Knights was unveiled earlier today at Tengah Air Base, with the familiar red and white colours retained, while adding on a crescent moon and five stars to symbolise Singapore's national symbols.

Chief of Air Force, Major-General Hoo Cher Mou said, "The Black Knights' precision, tight formations, skilful and spectacular manoeuvres are a source of great pride for a small nation like ours."

The Singapore Airshow 2014 will be held from February 11 to 16, 2014.
