Singapore Sneakily Adds to SG Fleet

Aug 25, 2014 No Comments by

Singapore appears to have quietly boosted the size of its F-15SG fleet from 24 aircraft to 40, according to Boeing financial statements, aircraft registration filings, and U.S. Congressional reports.

Singapore originally bought 12 F-15SGs – with an option for eight more – under a contract signed in December 2005. In October 2007 the city-state modified this option by buying 12 more to give it a total of 24.

These aircraft have all been confirmed as delivered and have U.S.-type serial numbers running from 05-0001 to 05-0024. Several remain in the United States with the Republic of Singapore Air Force’s (RSAF’s) 428th Fighter Squadron at Mountain Home Air Force Base (AFB) in southwestern Idaho, while the remainder are active in Singapore with 149 Squadron.

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.
