Anyone know if the new F-15SG's have been built or delivered to Singapore yet, if so does anyone have any pics of them?

No, doesn't look like it, even though deliveries are scheduled to start sometime this year.

Recent word has Saudi Arabia retrofitting all of their F-15's with GE F110's, as well as the sale of some 12 AH-64D Apaches, too. I like F-15's with the GE F110 - the way it always should have been!

"Meanwhile, Boeing expects to conduct the first flight of an F-15SG for Singapore before year-end, with the aircraft – the first of 24 currently on order for the nation – scheduled for delivery in early 2009. 'We look forward to seeing if more aircraft are in the mix for them,' says Winkler."

The first several F-15SGs will also be based in the US and not Singapore. Singapore has choosen Mountain Home AFB as their training facility. That is a little unusual though as the USAF does all primary F-15E training at Seymour Johnson. Either way, it is nice to see some new iron joining the ranks.

Thanks for all the answers I myself am looking forward to seeing them go into service also I think they will be a big boost to the Singapore airforce.

In a bit of "confusing" press release, Boeing reports that the first F-15SG for the RSAF was rolled-out 03 Nov 08, but had its first flight last Sep 16.....  confused

"ST. LOUIS, Nov. 03, 2008 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] today rolled out the first F-15SG jet fighter to the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF). The F-15SG is a variant of the highly capable, combat-proven F-15E."

[.....]

"F-15SG1 successfully completed its first flight from Lambert International Airport in St. Louis on Sept. 16. The aircraft now will undergo a one-year flight test program to confirm aircraft performance. Flight testing will take place at Boeing facilities in St. Louis and in Palmdale, Calif. F-15SG production deliveries will begin in the second quarter of 2009. The final aircraft in this procurement will be delivered to the RSAF in 2012."


Is the roll-out airframe the very same F-15SG1 flight test aircraft, or the first serial production version?
