Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) F-16C/D Fighting Falcons Depart Rockhampton Airport Wednesday

Sadly, the six Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) General Dynamics (Lockheed Martin) F-16C/D Block 52 Version Fighting Falcon jets that have been based at Rockhampton Airport over the last couple of weeks, departed on Wednesday 23 October.

The flight of six fighter jets - of 140 Squadron of the RSAF - all taxiied to the end of Runway 15 and all took to the sky in quick succession.  Information suggests that the six 'Vipers' departed to Darwin.  They were heard to again be using the one radio callsign of "Singa 3311".

The six F-16s that were in Rocky to participate in the Singapore Armed Force's Exercise Wallaby 2013 were:  '613' - F-16C-52-J, '694' - F-16D-52-CF, '625' - F-16D-52-J, '639' F-16D-52-CF, '611' F-16C-52-J, and '691' F-16D-52-J
