Ace of Spades × 6? . . . Deltanighthawk gawking at six Eagles screaming overhead in a Delta FlyBy. Six Ace of Spades. Or one Six of Spades? Chiseled Six of Spades slicing the skies in a sleek arrowhead formation, instead of how they usually appear with smooth curves 2-by-3 (or 3-by-2?) on a playing card. Also somehow reminds me of six arrowheads in a geometric Native American knitting pattern, prominent against a white and pastel blue backdrop. The first time I ever managed to get this formation on camera (and thankfully I didn't botch the shot!), was when the RSAF's Black Knights - F-16Cs decked in proud red and white livery - were rehearsing a Delta FlyBy for NDP 2008. Swipe left for the throwback image I had posted originally on 18 July 2016, and scroll down for part of the original caption. PS. Happy 50th Anniversary to @thersaf. . ♠️ ♠️ ♠️ ♠️ ♠️ ♠️ . [Re-posted] . ...A throwback shot of a weekday training for NDP 2008. The Republic of Singapore Air Force's aerobatics team, the RSAF Black Knights, doing their Delta FlyBy. And yours truly Deltanighthawk just happened to be at the window with a camera in hand. And, believe it or not, this was from my old point-and-shoot Canon Digital IXUS 850 IS. Zoom lens fully extended. So yes, those little white dots in the cockpits are the pilots' helmets. #republicofsingaporeairforce #thersaf #RSAF50 #aboveall #majulahsingapura #f15sg #strikeeagle #boeing #boeingdefense #f16c #falcon #lockheed #fighterjet #military #militaryaircraft #militarypilot #aviation #avporn #avgeek #militaryaviationphotography #sg #singapore #planespotter #nikon #nikonsg #nikonasia #instagramaviation #ndp2018 #wearesingapore #whatissingapore

Dude Where's Your Helmet? . . The Chinook bearing the State flag, for that one flypast at every National Day Parade rehearsal and on the actual day itself. ❤🇸🇬 . I spotted a photographer instead of a crew member looking out of the aircraft's window (swipe left for enlarged crop) with his lens aimed somewhere, at last Saturday's National Day Parade Combined Rehearsal. He had successfully taken away my attention from the rear end of the aircraft... which always reminds me of the comical face of a stunned frog. 🐸😂 . PS.
