Konferencja zapoczątkowała cykl spotkań dotyczących organizacji w przyszłym roku w 31. Bazie Lotnictwa Taktycznego w Poznaniu corocznego spotkania tygrysich eskadr.
Swoje przybycie potwierdzili między innymi przedstawiciele Belgii, Czech, Francji, Hiszpanii, Holandii, Niemiec, Norwegii, USA, Węgier, Włoch.
Translated by google
The conference initiated a series of meetings regarding the organization of the annual meeting of tiger squadrons in the 31st Tactical Air Base in Poznań next year.
Representatives of Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Norway, the USA, Hungary and Italy confirmed their arrival.
USA? Maybe one of the Tiger units from the USA on deployment? Or do they mean the NATO Awacs?

Also many countries missing is this years edition: Austria, Greece, Portugal, Slovakia, Switzerland, Turkey, UK.

The list is of countries that have confirmed their presence by now. Doesn't mean the others won't do the same later this year of course.

or KC-135s (like in the past), or just representatives or something completely different.

Or...one of the rotating units will be a NATO Tiger honorary member. For example the 120th Fighter Squadron was in Europe (Hungary) in 2016.

I think it's an internal problem related to the sharing of details between PoAF and the NTA staff. I do not believe it will affect the activity of spotters.

If you ask me that will be for the civilian airshow at Poznan Airport, which will happen during the Tiger Meet...see here: http://www.poznanairshow.pl/en/
I heard some rumor, that some or all Tiger Meet participants will be on static display at the airshow OR with one ticket you can enter the polish air base for a static display.
