The flying of the Flag going by our place…. at a distance.

We got to see both formations as they were ending their east & west route and heading north to Sembawang Air Base.

For the first time, Singaporeans will be able to see from their homes the state flag fly-past during this year’s National Day Parade (NDP).

Two Chinook helicopters, each carrying the Singapore flag at about 305m (1,000ft) in the air, will fly across the island on two separate routes in the east and the west.

Each helicopter will be escorted by two Apache helicopters during this segment titled “Fly Our Flag”.

Both routes will begin in the south of Singapore and end at Sembawang Air Base in the north. The flights are slated to start at 10.30am and will each take 55 minutes.

In previous years, the fly-past took place at a single location where the NDP was held, such as the floating platform at Marina Bay, and lasted only 10 minutes.

This year’s NDP will also mark the first time a female pilot will be flying a Chinook helicopter in the state flag fly-past.

Captain Trixie Tang, 31, who is also the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s first female Chinook helicopter pilot, will be flying on the east route

Here’s the behind the scene of the preparation
