Let's go to the anniversary Tigermeet 2011, Cambrai, France!
Today, May 9th, 2011, the 321 Tigers made their way to Cambrai in France with the assigned machines. After the advance command arrived in Cambrai last week, the following four ECR tornadoes blew up in Lechfeld today:
ECR 46+33 - The brand new Tigerjet and the flagship of the Tigers, Tactical call sign "Tiger", landed at 11:20 local time.
ECR 46+29 - Last year's Tigerjet, also known to insiders as the "Lego Bomber", of course still in its polarizing tiger livery,
tactical call sign "Lego", landed at 11:20 local time
ECR 46+44 - The former "Metamorphosis" Tigerjet from Tiger Meet 2001 as escort and backup aircraft. This time unfortunately without this sensational painting, but at least with painted tanks. However, his mere presence will be a nice reminder of times gone by for the older participants, Landing at 11:21 local time.
ECR 46+46 - As an accompanying machine and spare, Landing at 11:21 local time.
