RSAF M-346 makes maiden flight

The first ‪Republic of Singapore Air F‬orce ‪Alenia Aermacchi M-346‬ Master trainer has made its maiden flight last Friday. It was painted in primer, with a grey fin. Final camouflage will be overall grey.

No real surprises regarding the colour of the RSAF M-346s. We just hope it gets some unique 150 Sqn markings, like the Cazaux-based A/TA-4SU Super Skyhawks a while back before they were removed. Personally, markings like those displayed on the M-346 model at the Singapore Airshow in February (see image below) wouldn't go missing, even if the aircraft was painted in a single tone of grey...
