Singapore F-15SGs with RSAF50 scheme

The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) has painted two of its Paya Lebar-based F-15SG Eagles in a unique scheme as part of celebrations to commemorate RSAF50 — the year-long celebrations to mark its golden jubilee in 2018.

The fuselage, wings and tails of the F-15SGs sport a unique blue, the tone of which was derived from that of the RSAF state colour. The topside and outer tails of the F-15SGs feature the RSAF50 logo – the numerical ‘50’ over the Singapore city skyline. Also detailed on the inner tails are the three RSAF roundels that have been used at one time or other over the five decades.

Singapore President Halimah Yacob unveiled the scheme today during the airshow and one of these jets is expected to participate in an integrated aerial display with two F-16Cs. The F-15SGs will also take part in various RSAF events and celebrations throughout the year.

A report on the RSAF’s Air Combat Command – including its F-15SGs – will appear in a forthcoming issue of AFM.
