Airshow Kecskemet 2013

By tigerstaffel

On the first weekend of August this year, parts of the Tiger-squadron headed to Hungary for the Kecskemet Airshow. The Hungarian Cougar Squadron, which is also a member of the NATO Tiger Association,  took the opportunity to host a Mini-Tigermeet for participating NTA members. Therefore, five men of the Tiger-Squadron lifted off at Thursday for a short flight of only 43 minutes to Kecskemet. After landing at the airbase, we were immediately welcomed by the squadron commander of the Pumas and our guide who took care of us. In the afternoon, after the Rehearsal was completed and the static aircraft at its position, we took the crew bus to Szeged, approximately 1 hour from Kecskemet, where we spent the first night. The first half of the next day we spent in Szeged and could then, thanks to our crew supervisor, go to a hotel a little closer to the Airbase before we attended the evening Mass-Briefing . Right after, we took the bus with the other Tiger-pilots to the venue of the Mini-Meet. Also present were, besides us, two of the three senior Tigers, Don and Doc, and about 30 pilots from Belgium, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and of course Hungary. At the restaurant where the Mini Meet was held, the competitions started and took turns with each course of a very extensive menu and some “Palinkas”. In the competitions we had to prove ourselves as horse archers, and to show our skills at “air to air – refuelling”. As expected, we finished the competition as winners by points. After a few more “Palinkas”, beers and the Tiger Style dessert, all participants were delivered back to their hotels by bus.

Airpower 2013

By tigerstaffel

After two years of waiting, the Airpower was held again from 28th – 29th of June. In addition to many national and international participants, the Tigersquadron took part with a Solo-Display, a 4-ship-Display and one plane on static display.
Preparations began months in advance with the training of the 4-ship-display and the distribution of the remaining tasks. In several training flights, the display program was further improved until perfection. A particular challenge was the nearly two-week absence of most of the Squadron due to the Tiger Meet in the week before Airpower.

Châteaudun

By tigerstaffel

 

The first Airshow of the Year led the Tiger Squadron to Châteaudun (France) for the first time since 2003. Arrival and administration worked well so we could explore Orléans and Châteaudun in the evening. Saturday was Spotter- and Rehearsal-day and went relaxed, if you have no problem with avoiding all the camera lenses because the spotters want the aircraft only on their photos. On Sunday we had an Airshow with blue sky and only few cumulus clouds. Our Static Aircraft was in good company between a Tornado, a Mirage 2000 and a Rafale.
