National Day Happenings
On 9 Aug, prior to the parade at the Padang, two CH-47SD Chinook helicopters, each escorted by two AH-64D Apache helicopters, will execute the “Fly Our Flag” segment, flying the state flag across Singapore.
Starting from around 5.30pm to 6.30pm, the helicopters will fly two routes – a western route that takes them past locations such as Woodlands, Choa Chu Kang and Jurong, and an eastern route which includes Bukit Timah, Toa Payoh, Bishan, Pasir Ris, Tampines and Changi.
From 5.40pm to 6.10pm, an A330 Multi-Role Tanker Transport accompanied by six F-16D+ and three F-15SG fighter aircraft will execute the RSAF55 Island Flypast, flying in the vicinity of the five heartland sites: Jurong West, Woodlands, Toa Payoh, Tampines and Bedok.
Concurrent with the fireworks medley at the Padang on National Day, fireworks will also go off at the five heartland sites, which will be open to the public from 6pm.
The fireworks display is expected to take place between 8.15pm and 8.25pm.
