Being Singaporean, I am naturally proud that our island nation have come a long way to celebrate 50 years of independence.
Once again, Happy National Day to Singapore !
Bring an aviation buff, I cant help but to also showcase a photo of the Republic's flying acrobatics team, the Black Knights. These F16s, painted in the colours of the national flag, flew over the skies of Singapore in the run-up events leading to the main celebratory event on 9 Aug.
