NATO TIGER MEET 2007 (Arctic Tiger) Ørland, Norway



From September 24th - October 01st the NATO Tiger Meet 2007 took place under the motto “Arctic Tiger” in Ørland, Norway. With only a week's break, this meant that some of us went back to Ørland, where the Bold Avenger exercise had previously taken place.

Unfortunately we were only able to participate partially (namely September 27th - October 1st in a kind of cross country mission) and moved to Norway with 3 TORNADOs on Thursday with a stopover in Wittmund.

When we arrived in Norway, we started planning our local flight over the bizarre and beautiful mountain and fjord landscape. The route took us across the Arctic Circle to Bodo MAS and back.

On Friday afternoon our bikes left the solid ground of Iceland for a flight time of 1:40 hours in a local loop.
