Re: NATO Tiger Meet Poznan 14-25 May 2018

I wish the NTA, and our website, could be of help to all you hearty and important Spotters. We have nothing to do or say about that event. At the final NTM planning conference, one slide (out of seemingly hundreds of NTM slides) mentioned the spotters (yeah, like: "there will be spotters"). The spot...

Re: 01aug2016 Turkey: Incirlik AFB sealed off again.........

An interesting bunch of different opinions. Good stuff. As far as I know, the attention that Incirlik has been getting since day 1 of the coup attempt has to do with the semi-renegade Turkish Tanker squadron stationed there, not at all the US units present or the nukes that might still be there. I t...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet 2017

Dates are 5-16 June. 11F gave us an initial briefing in Zaragosa. No word at all about an airshow or a spottersday. Please, please don't bother them at the Base on these questions; June is a long way away. The NTA site, or our FB page should, repeat should, have the first glimmer of news on these ev...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

Hi there again I have a question that probably any tiger member would be able to answer; how is each squadron financing the special painting schemes? I mean, is all paid by each country defence budget or each squadron has a kind of "private" money pocket which is financed with airshows participatio...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

Thanks Fox for that link. I'm down here in and among the Spanish authorities dealing day and night with NTM programs and issues, and this is the first I've seen of an airshow schedule. The thing is as simple as this, the NTM is the responsibility of the 15th Wing and the airshow is being run by the ...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

And ETESDA are the dog handlers of the Air Force :wink: Nice! Since everybody is threatening to stay at home because they are not 100% sure if all their private/individual wishes are attended to, we will have plenty of room the capture the dogs on Saturday! ;-) :fadein: Dog handlers, spotters handl...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

Question for everyone, Is the open house open for us spotters or only for family and friends of base personnel? Will we be able to get on base or would pictures be only available from off base? What are the flying times? Thanks for any help and information!! See you guys on Friday! See my post else...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

I don't think the colour is that important. http://natotigers.org/tiger-news/attention-ntm-2016-spotters-day-update simply mentions a fluorescent vest. I would think yellow or orange will do, only the TLP press/spotter day issued blue ones (non fluorescent) would not be acceptable, I think. Hans. A...

Hi Volkert, I'll make your good suggestion when I get there next weekend. There are somethings where one doesn't want to ask too early. Cheers, Don

Re: Bronco's in service "again"?

I read in Air Force Magazine that the "experiment" is over. Like so many good ideas, it's all about the money. Can't seem to attach the article in pdf or jpeg (Not allowed). So if interested in the wording of the article, send me your email address if you like and I'll send back
