New update on the Intruder aircraft. It is said that the intruder aircraft was ok a test flight from Koh Samui when it strayed into Singapore airspace.
There was a forum letter about the interception.
Quote: Couldn't intruder plane have landed at Seletar?
On tuesday Singapore's airspace was infiltrated by a civilian Cessna 208. It was escorted by two of our fighter jets to land at Changi, causing our international airport to be closed to close to an hour. Why was it necessary for the small plane to lane at Changi? We have another civilian airport at Seletar, and military airbases that could have been used to avoid causing disruption, or alarm to passengers.

As far as I know, airbases in this situation is a big no-no. And the nearest airport for the plane to land is Changi and I think we wouldn't want the plane to flyover Singapore to land at Seletar in case the plane was laden with explosives.
