A Republic of Singapore Air Force F-15SG Strike Eagle jet fighter sits on the flight line at Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, Aug. 15, 2011. A fire near the base shut down flying operations. Personnel were evacuated from flight line buildings as the fire approached. The F-15SG is a variant of the F-15E chosen by Singapore in 2005. Six of the aircraft are based at Mountain Home as part of a long-term training detachment for Singaporean pilots.

If you click on the photo to enlarge the image, you can see the Lion’s head roundel of the Singapore Air Force just below the cockpit. Singapore means Lion City in Malay, one of the four official languages of the island city-state. English, Chinese and Tamil and the other three.
