Singapore Vehicle Spotting
Singapore didn't leave me indifferent about its vehicles. I had the luck to enjoy the sight of hundreds and hundreds of luxury cars from Ferraris to Rolls Royce.
But most interesting to me was a weird amphibious open-top tourist tour bus...
My favourites were the mentioned amphibious bus and the old-style cruise boats that were sailing up and down on the Singapore River, through Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, the Marina Bay.
Suprisingly I frequently hear strong jet engine noise. Like the one created by fighter jets.
I looked out my window and behold: a formation of about 5 F-15 fighter jets were cutting across the sky. Later I found out that there's an airbase at Paya Lebar.
The jets were too fast and they appeared and disappeared unpredictably. The tall buildings didn't permit me to take photos of them, but I was able to photograph a formation on military helicopters while walking in the beautiful Boat Quay area.
You'll find the photo of a Singapore flag-carrying CH-47 Chinook along with two AH-64 Apache Longbow attack helicopters.
All of these aerial vehicles were preparing for the Singapore National Day Parade. Which is held on August 9th every year.

The monster-duck was getting ready to depart...
It swam with easy, jetting on the water fast like a motorboat!
