The feature of engagement in this Singapore Air Show is that we fly directly while the T-50 is taken apart, delivered and re-built in the last the U.K. one.
T-50B aircraft will depart from Jeju and arrive at Changi Airport in Singapore, via Indonesia, etc. Korean Air Force will dispatch three C-130 transport planes and 50 support personnel to conduct maintenance and fueling missions at stops.
