Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

Goldenflyer, quick answer to your questions are no and no. Have you seen an airshow list?? The list I posted above is only the list of NTM participants. The NTA is not in the airshow business so we don't know or have any say in their airshow static display layout. I assume they'll request one of eac...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

K-9, good copy. "Fairly late" was the trigger. I guess I wouldn't call 2 days after the NTA found out officially from the host base exactly late. We'll get it on the site after we put our bags down and say hello to the family. Anyway, NTM 16 is gonna be big. If the force offerings hold, it will be o...

Re: NATO TIGER MEET 2016 Zaragoza

K-9, the "NTA" is just now returning from the Main Planning Conference in Zaragosa where we just were officially informed there would be an airshow. I get the feeling that you're quite the amateur when it comes to the NATO tigers. We are not in the airshow business. Since 55 years we are about comba...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Hi All, new info: I've been successful in arranging special "outside the fence" areas for those spotters arriving in Konya a little early. On Wednesday, 6 May. They didn't give times (and we might not know til a day or two before, so pls don't ask, we'll post when known). Basically it's outside the ...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Hey Marcel, Still some Sqns "on the fence" (if that's what you're wondering about). We've got about 500 people signed up. As I mentioned early on, it's gonna be a smaller Meet than we've gotten used to in the last several years. I'm guessing it's to be about 11 sqns. In my 35 Tiger Meets, I can say ...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

I've asked the TUAF to send any and all other acft types they have to make some approaches, touch and goes, taxibacks to enhance the Spotters day. They said, "good idea, we'll see what we can do". Now I only have ask to the right General who's in charge of weather........... :wink:

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Yeah? I guess I screwed that up, I met so many F-4 guys there (on the Anatolian Eagle staff, now that I think about it), and I was asking about getting myself a ride, I assumed that there were still some phantoms at Konya.
Mea culpa, Don

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Depends on one's point of view. For example, a young Rafale pilot, who will get to fly more, better training missions than last year (and maybe someday save his life) would not agree with you. Final list not yet available. My guess: 10 Sqns from 8 nations. It will be bigger than AE 2014-2 which you ...
