Public Road Converted Into Alternate Runway

Monday, 1st December 2008

A Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) F-16D+ fighter takes off from a public road during an Air Power Generation exercise. More than 10 Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) aircraft executed a series of take-offs and landings on Lim Chu Kang Road as part of an exercise. Lim Chu Kang Road was converted into an alternate runway by the RSAF's Air Power Generation Command (APGC) for an exercise involving the RSAF's F-5 and F-16 fighter aircraft, and E-2C airborne early warning aircraft. The sixth in the series since 1986, the Alternate Runway Exercise hones the RSAFs readiness and ability to deliver uninterrupted air power at all times.
