The NATO Tiger Association had picked 313
squadron to organise the 2010 edition of the NATO Tigermeet.
Fortunately for me I had some spare time during this meet so I could
attend more then 1 day of flying during this 2 week event.
The first day I visited was on the monday of the second week of this event.Week 1 had been plagued with lots of fog and damp weather which didn't create the conditions we want for photography. The weatherforecast for the second week was a lot better with promisses of lots of sun and easterly winds and clear skies. Before I went towards Volkel I had made an inquiry of what to do and not to do and where we were allowed to take pictures of the participants.
During my cardrive to the south of the Netherlands in the early morning the weather became more promissing than I had wished for with clear a blue sky and no clouds at all and light breeze from the east. Once on base the first I made was the Safaripark where the hungarians,czechs and french had parked their aircraft. With the light from the early morningsun I made some wonderfull pictures of the tigerbirds parked here. Next stop after the Safaripark would be the cross-servicingplatform near the holdingarea from runway 06.
