Singapore’s new Boeing F-15SG Eagle multi-role fighter aircraft are now operationally ready, marking full operational capability status with a ceremony officiated by Singaporean Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen at Paya Lebar Air Base in central-eastern Singapore yesterday.

The F-15SG, operated by 149 Squadron, is one of the most advanced variants of the F-15 strike aircraft and has a distinguished combat record. The Republic of Singapore Air Force took delivery of the aircraft in May 2009. Since then, the pilots, weapon systems officers and maintenance crew have undergone intensive training to operate and maintain the aircraft. The aircraft have also been part of major military exercises.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
