SINGAPORE - The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) will be debuting an integrated aerial display involving an F-15SG multi-role fighter aircraft and an AH-64D Apache attack helicopter at the Singapore Airshow 2016.

The outdoor event held from Feb 16 to 21 at Changi Exhibition Centre is touted to be Asia's biggest aviation showcase.

During the airshow, the RSAF aerial display will see 11 manoeuvres over 12 minutes to showcase the precision and coordination between the two different aircraft types.

A highlight of the display is a manoeuvre called the Vertical Punch which will be performed for the first time.

F-15SG flight lead Major Max Ng said: "We have undergone intensive training to finesse the aerial manoeuvres to showcase the grace and power of the two aircraft and to thrill the audience."

"The integrated display highlights the professionalism and capabilities of our Air Force and personnel," he added.

A total of 11 military assets including the F-15SG fighter aircraft, Black Knight F-16C aircraft in its red and white paint scheme and DERby (SPYDER) Ground-Based Air Defence system will be exhibited.

Visitors can also view commercial and military aircraft from Bombardier, Qatar, Sukhoi, Airbus, Pacific Aerospace, Finmeccanica and Textron Aviation.

The airshow will feature three zones this year - the Aerospace Emerging Technologies Zone, the Business Aviation Zone and the Training & Simulation Zone, for the public to visit.

At the Training & Simulation Forum, the exhibitors in this zone will have the opportunity to make a presentation.
