Happy 42th Birthday Singapore

Today is Singapore's National Day.

The celebrations are held at the Marina Bay and this is the fly past with the Chinook helicopters and a very big Singapore Flag. Together with the Chinooks are Apache attack helicopters as escorts. They fly at around 90-100 km/h so that the flag won't fold when its moving too slowly or tear when its moving too fast.

The flag weights 63 kg and is around 500 square metres big. (Think something a bit bigger than a basketball court)


Thanks also to Momo's friend who provided this photo today.

Happy Birthday Singapore.
