NTM 1978 Tony, with John and Louis

A few days before Christmas the Tiger Community lost probably its most famous member. Tony attended some 18 Meets and Mini-Meets.

His friend and former 31 Sqn-mate, Roger Lams, sent us this tribute:

on September 19, rear-admiral Hervé de Bonnaventure, commander of the Naval Aviation (ALAVIA)has recognized Commander Bertrand Lepoutre as new commander of the FLOTTILLE 11F.

NTM 2012, unlike previously reported is NOT taking place in Portugal, but in Norway.
Due to increasing financial problems for Portugal, and the economic measures announced by the IMF last July. Budget for operational training for the Portuguese Air Force has suffered a drastic cutback, resulting in the cancellation of NTM 2012.

Last year around the same time, we announced the pre-order conditions for our 50 Years anniversary book.
