I guess a lot of you guys have been to a Tiger Meet where aircraft from different NATO forces are painted up with Tiger Skins on their fuselage, fin, drop tanks etc. 74 [Tiger] Squadron never had to dress up they were that already! smile.gif

A few examples from the B'waters Cold War Museum [BCWM] from 2 weeks ago

I was given a couple of C0ckpit drawings of an A10 anf F5 Aggressor that were once based at BW, both superbly drawn by aviation artist Geoff Pleasance

I only visited Bent Waters once, that was to attend the 1965 'At Home' in May of that year.

Recently scanned some slides that I took at the time.  Apologies for the quality but the slides have not stood the test of time that well.
