During the NATO Tiger Meet at Landivisiau a very small crew member is spotted flying along with several types of aircraft.
Tigger, the little mascot of the 31 squadron crew chiefs has travelled all over the world. Nevertheless he got home back in time to accompany the 31 squadron detachment to exercise Ocean Tiger.
With 6 pilots and only 2 technicians, the Austrian JTTR squadron is the smallest crew attending Ocean Tiger.
The Austrian JTTR squadron has been visiting the NATO Tiger Meet as observers several times in the past years.
Because of their regular participation they were at some point offered an honorary membership.
Many pilots and aircraft do attend the Tiger Meet each year. However, an even bigger group of crew chiefs, technical specialist and OPS assistants are making sure the pilots can do their job.
Modern day aircraft are full of sophisticated technology. As a result they become more and more complex to maintain.
