Mindef can’t even arrange safe passage of our Terrexes through international waters without being impounded by HK. Ah Hen is a joke, hor.

Eggmy Khor would say, f16 is designed according to international standard.

But what’s about the pilot?

What would be the 1206 cost for this one!
Anyway, to ah Ng this would be a cheap write off, borne by taxpayers!
Until the next crash is a F-35!😆😆😆😆

Thank God…no family lost a ..precious son…or father etc.

Very expensive accident but no fatalities is the most important.
Next topic in our parliament coming up.COI consisting of doctor, lawyer and economist will be put together to investigate the technical facts of a fighter jet.

There goes SG Reserves, a $300 million plane ✈? While I do wish the pilot well and good.

However why SG needs F16 – when SAF is so careless with the Armour Vehicles allowing others to PLAY, TO OPEN UP, TO STUDY our Defence Secrets FREELY?
