The Turks I think we can understand... shame about the Norwegians though, especially as they often have a nice special-scheme or two...

With pilots away on conversion training my guess would be that there's not enough pilots around to send a bunch of them away for a couple of weeks. That and the fact that the number of airworthy F-16s is rapidly dwindling.

Its an impressive scheme, but I have to say I'm not a great fan of these odd coloured tigers. I prefer the tigers to look like tigers, our 2005 Puma for example. :up:

I'm usually not a fan either, but I quite liked this, although it looked better in the gloomy hangar than out in the sun :P

Bit Over The Top! :wink:
Surely a tail-fin sticker featuring just a quarter of a Tiger head on a red background is sufficient? :facepalm:
A seriously good effort, once again. :up:

No, they just don't drop any bombs. Just one storm shadow launched last night would pay for ten aircraft being painted...

It's like a soldier that doesn't fire a rifle... :lmao: One Storm Shadow? Or a colour-by-numbers squadron? Tough choice. :lol:

Can we expect more schemes like this to be rolled out by the other participating nations? :smile:

Has anyone heard anything from the spotters day registration? Sent an email yesterday which hasn't been responded to.

Starting to get a little twitchy about it.

If, as is widely speculated, the RAF Puma is retired within the next year, could this be the last year the RAF has a tiger squadron?
