Today’s post is about two flights in one day.
I hadn’t originally planned on this, but it turned out that the weather was just right for flying at around 7.50am in the morning. There were almost no clouds, no wind and the sun was just starting to shine on the leaves, grass and river in the Bishan Ang Mo Kio Park (see also my previous flight there).
I decided on a quick flight from a man-made rock formation across the river and taking in the beautiful morning view and objects in the park. You can also see the picture taken from ~40 meters above the park in the featured image above.
The original point of Wednesday’s flight was to go to an abandoned railway station in Bukit Timah, the “Old Bukit Timah Railway Station“, which used to connect Singapore to Malaysia (now replaced by the link between Woodlands CIQ & Johor Bahru CIQ.
Sadly, and what I hadn’t researched enough prior to my flight, the entire railway corridor is currently under construction – it is impossible to walk along the railway and the old station is off limits.
However, flying a drone at 50-60m above the action is not a problem and I was able to capture some views in the evening light of the old station close to King Albert Park station on the Downtown Line.
Adjacent to all the construction sites is an untouched area alongside Old Holland Road which is also famous for drone get-togethers as it is both outside a non-fly-zone and an easy place to learn to fly & do precarious manoeuvres. Can you spot the model airplane in today’s video?
And as always, thanks for reading/watching & subscribing to my blog!
See you next time!
