Republic of Singapore Air Force RSAF Exercise Torrent preview: Last E-2C Hawkeye
This was last Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) to take-off from a road.
The 111 Squadron E-2C, 014, participated in the RSAF Alternate Runway exercise, codenamed Torrent VI, in November 2008. The airborne early warning & control aircraft, which had been upgraded with a Singapore-developed Mission Command & Control (MC2) suite, has since been replaced by Gulfstream G550 AEW aircraft.
RSAF warplanes that have also taken part in the Torrent series and since retired include the F-16A, F-5S and A-4SU.
Look out for another significant "last" at the upcoming Exercise Torrent VII, to be held from 10 to 14 Nov'16 at Lim Chu Kang Road.
