Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Hi Rene (K9) et al, We had a very productive Main Planning Conference at Konya AB. Even though we won't have the numbers we have enjoyed at Meets in the last several years, the participants are putting a positive spin on the situation. Several "regular" tiger squadrons are busy with real operations ...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

I'm the senior advisor to the NTA, I'm sure I'd know if such a rumor was true. I was just in contact with the host a couple hours ago and I can assure you nothing along these lines was mentioned. May I ask from whom did you hear such a thing?? Cheers, Don

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Hi Peter, et al, Reply today from Konya is as before. NOT ALLOWED. I'll bring the subject up at the MPC. Talking to the local people (security chief, Base CO, etc) face to face for a special group (spotters who come a long way) may yield results. BUT, looking at the wording given to Starfighter, don...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Hey Hawkeye 67. Got the following answer from the base at Konya: "It is not allowed to take photos and 'hang on the fence' in our base. Our MPs normally react in a few minutes and request police support if there will be any situation out of the fence. So, currently the answer is NO. But for the NTM ...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

Hey Rene, I just checked with our webmaster and he says that normally that list is only known a week or two before the Meet. I'm going to the Main Planning Conference at the end of this month and I know I'll be joined by lots of Tiger Sqn reps. True, a few favorites (31, 59/1, 11f) have stated they ...

Re: NATO Tiger Meet Spotters Days

To Hawkeye67. I've received an interim answer ("will have to check w/civil authorities"). So they're working on a response. They have a very rigid chain of command, even for such a mundane question as ours. I'll update when I find out more. Cheers, Don

Gabriele, You'll get it back. Hopefully you're not on any "watch lists" or wanted by some police force. Cheers, Don

Re: Schelswig-Jagel: Nato Tiger Meet 16-28 June 2014

For those interested in the World Cup (who isn't, even me, an American), I'd guess any of the bars in one of the close-by towns would be a start. Perhaps some 313 guy, or other Dutch spotter, might scope it out next week and post it here. Cheers, Don

Re: Schelswig-Jagel: Nato Tiger Meet 16-28 June 2014

Hi Aviation Enthusiasts, Spotters, and Photographers. There are still some tickets available. Several of the 21 Tiger Squadron Commanders present at FAF HQ for the first NTA Tiger Symposium last week, were bragging to me about their Tiger paint schemes for NTM 14. So I'm stoked (and this will be my ...

Re: Increase in USAF action Eastern Europe

I'm the senior advisor to the NTA with 31 Meets behind me. Participants list hasn't changed much since it was published on Scramble. Had a couple of cancelations: 338 Sqn F-16s, the French Army Helos, I think that's it. Oh yeah, 11F was listed as flying Super Etendards; they've been on Rafale-M sinc...
