Restored FX-52 attends NATO Tiger Meet 2009
The famous 'Tiger' Starfighter will be on display during the NATO Tiger Meet spottersday on September 18, 2009
The FX-52 was the first aircraft from 31 squadron that received a full Tiger color scheme. This was done for the 1978 NATO Tiger Meet held at Kleine-Brogel airbase from on 19-26 June 1978.
Aviation enthusiasts Dirk Bellens and Henk de Jongh worked 3 years to restore the air-frame into static display condition.
The Starfighter is now appropriately stored in a Cold War era hardened aircraft shelter at Weeze airport (Germany).
