Singapore celebrates its 49th birthday with the National Day Parade (NDP) at Marina Bay’s floating platform. With the theme ‘Our People, Our Home', this year’s NDP celebrates the key ingredient in Singapore’s foundation - its people.

And one person made history tonight - Third Warrant Officer Shirley Ng became the first woman to jump with the Singapore Armed Forces’ Red Lions at the NDP.  

The eighth parachutist to take the leap, Ng was supposed to make her debut at last year's parade but the free fall display was cancelled last minute due to cloudy conditions.
