NATO "Tiger Meet" 2003, Cambrai, France
NATO “Tiger Meet” 2003 was held in Cambrai, France and hosted by EC 01.012 at Base
Aerienne 103. The 39th annual reunion of the association attracted 11 squadrons from
various countries. The meet is used to build friendships but mainly to show their skills as
pilots and teams. One of the traditions is that at least the Tiger Meet host paints one of
its aircraft in a Tiger scheme. In 2003 the host team stole the show with “Tiger Eyed”,
one of the most spectacular paint schemes done to date.
