ABBEY: We saw the RSAF Open House ad in the lift lobby of our building. We're excited to go to the activity. But we woke up late on May 28. By the time we got to the free shuttle at Hougang Interchange it was already 11am; its the start of the air display. The queue for free ride is so long. We didn't waste our time and booked a cab. 15mins later, we're at Paya Lebar. At the gate are machines to scan your belongings and after that is the information counter. Visitors were given a brochure that serves also as a map. We also caught a glimpse of the air show. Different models of jet like the F-15SG, Chinook and Apache choppers, C130, radars, and other military weapons were exhibited. Guest can have a picture while sitting on the cockpit but you must take the long queue :) There were also flight simulators, aircraft LAN games on the open house. PR's and Singaporeans were given a chance for a free ride if their names were drawn in the raffle. Souvenirs were given away like pins, key chains, tattoos, and your very own pictures with your fave aircraft as backdrop. The sun also didn't miss the activity, good thing we put our sun blocks on.
WILL: Why we went for RSAF? Its for me to amaze myself how high their technology is. This is a free event for two days. Here they showcase their hardwares they uses to monitor the Singapore's space.I enjoyed a lot their 11am air show. They have the men and women that is very approachable, very accommodating and smiles never left their faces. How i wish we can ride one of their air crafts but that chance were for Singaporeans and PRs only.
Looking forward for 2012 open house :)
