The 2021 XTM X-TIGER

The NATO Tiger Meet is a yearly tradition. Each year, squadrons from NATO Air Forces that carry a tiger in their emblem get together for exercises and fraternization.

The 1st time I was at a NATO Tiger Meet was in 1985. It was quite memorable. I remember having a lot of fun at the airshow back then.

2021 marked the 60th anniversary of the NATO Tiger Association and the 70th anniversary of the BAF 31SQN; a tiger squadron. Therefor, 31SQN had to honor to host the 2021 Tiger Meet. Even though it was a scaled down version due to COVID, 31SQN created a special paint scheme for the event.

Here’s the 2021 XTM X-Tiger. It is XT-ROAR-DINARY!

Of course, the X-Tiger led the pack of tigers for a final fly-by at the end of the show. That’s the prerogative of the squadron that hosts the Tiger meet.
