taking video within the camp is chargeable offence leh. Airbase should be no photos/videos area. 

I would like to see the gong kia who upload. 

Anyway that one was practice for a show, so have video taken is normal. This one just routine take off only.

It is a 25 year old plane at very close to EOL already. Although refurbished with new engines, avionics and armaments, the airframe is still old. All it needs is a fracture under take off stress at full throttle and the pilot loses control at critical juncture.

Our oldest four C-130 are built in 1958 and 1960 which qualifies them for retirement if they were Singaporean. But I guess the virtue of having multiple engines means that losing one engine isn’t going to result in a hull loss. 

It’s still not clear why the F-16 crashed though - we only know it was at the takeoff phase. Perhaps more information will come soon.

But I guess residents in Jurong West will enjoy some peace and quiet in the days to come 🤐
