313 Squadron decided to donate a part of the income from the spottersday to the spots foundation. Today we received news of what they used this budget for.
SPOTS bought a quad for a unit in Russia who is protecting Siberian Tigers (only 400 left in the wild) and Amur leopards (only 50 left in the wild) from poachers.

Already progressing into the second week of the NATO Tiger Meet the OPS-tempo is kept very high. Still 1 day and 2 missions to go before we know who takes the Silver Tiger home!

On Tuesday, October 5th the NATO Tigers took to the sky for their first NTM’10 missions.
The AM missions provided the pilots to get familiar with the training area, and get some smaller scale training. While in the afternoon the first large COMAO exercise was flow.

On Monday October 4th 2010 the NATO Tiger Meet 2010 participants arrived at VOLKEL AB, which hosts the NTM for the first time.
The 2010 Tiger Meet will be unforgettable for at least 1 squadron, 211 squadron from the Czech Republic.

The first of hopefully many specially decorated aircraft for NATO Tiger Meet 2010 has taken to the skies.
The Czech Air Force, 211 Squadron, has recently flown a newly Tiger decorated JAS-39D Gripen. Unlike most Units, that decorate the tail,
211.Taktická letka has opted to decorate the 2 large canards from the Jet fighter.

The planning for NTM 2010 has kicked off today, with the start of the IPC (Initial Planning Conference) at Vlb. Volkel.
