Getting to seletar

How we travelled to Seletar Up until the late 1950s most people travelled by troop ship which took weeks or even months. Even if you were lucky enough to fly it still took several days to get there. In the early 1960 chartered aircraft were used which reduced the travelling time to about 24 hours. In the late 1960s and early 1970s the RAF VC10 was used which came via RAF Gan a small staging post in the middle of the Indian ocean.
