You don’t see this every day

Sitting down for a cocktail at a rooftop bar at Boat Quay in Singapore on Saturday night with some colleagues, I was treated to a front row seat at the rehearsal for Singapore’s national day celebrations. The fun began with this flyover of a CH-47 Chinook helicopter dragging an immense flag, all escorted by a couple of Apache helicopters.

What I didn’t catch in the photo was the high speed maneuvers by the fighter jets, followed by a supersonic flyby, then the salute of a half-dozen howitzers.

And yes, this was just the rehearsal.

It was a gorgeous night, and this was the capper.

Happy Birthday, Lion City.
