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.
This job is done by a hundreds of technical specialists and ground crew people that accompany the squadrons to the Tiger Meets.
Many of these crew chiefs even have more Tiger Meets on their records than pilots do, some of them even attended Tiger Meets in the late seventies.
