: The Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) today celebrated its 62nd anniversary in the new normal way via social media platform, said Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said this was due to the enforcement of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) to curb the spread of COVID-19.
"There were no more parades or large gatherings, just a small-scale celebration (not in terms of gathering) but using the electronic media.
"Earlier I was told that RMAF chief General Datuk Seri Ackbal Samad had conveyed his special message on the air force's anniversary via online," he said at the daily press conference of the CMCO today.
As such, Ismail Sabri, who is also the Defence Minister, said RMAF personnel had to comply with the new normal when it came to celebrating the air force's anniversary.
