In this second part of our two part series, we would be featuring all the military aviation that were on static display from the Singapore Airshow 2018. The Static Aircraft Display Area boasted about 60 aircraft from various manufacturers and air forces. A huge chunk of the space was taken up by the home air force, The Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) who are celebrating it’s fifty years anniversary. They were displaying almost every asset in their inventory and had many fighter aircraft and helicopters with doors and cockpits wide open for visitors to sit and touch.

Apart from the RSAF, we saw mulitple assets from the United States Air Force (USAF), United States Navy (USN) and the United States Marine Corp (USMC) with a pair of Lockheed Martin F-35B Lightning IIs making a first appearance in an airshow. Other air forces participating was the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF), Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF), Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) and finally Chengdu Aircraft Industry Group (CAIG).
