‘Best Painted Aircraft‘ at Tigermeet: Eurofighter Typhoon: theBrigade

This was in the Sunday Surfing today. This is one awesome looking Typhoon. They have the winner at this year’s Tiger Meet(Bucket List Item).

The stunning ‘Tiger Typhoon’ clinched the international award at the event in Schleswig, North Germany. In total over 60 aircraft from 12 different nations attended the Tigermeet which is a regular event aimed at encouraging nations to freely explore interoperability and joint operations in a informal and flexible environment.
The Typhoon Tiger is one of several Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft in the Luftwaffe’s 74th Tactical Fighter Wing, formerly known as JG 74. The Bavarian Tigers first formed in March 2013 following the restructuring of the Luftwaffe that year. The Fighter Wing is based at Neuburg and Lechfeld Air Base in Bavaria. The tiger tradition was handed over from former Fighter Bomber Wing 32 in Lechfeld to Fighter Wing 74.
Kommodore Frank Graefe, who heads the Fighter Wing, said: “Everywhere we go the Tiger Typhoon has been getting a fantastic reaction. There is no doubt that it is an incredible looking aircraft. We were honoured to have been awarded this prize – especially since we were competing against the world’s best.”
“Although the award may have its light-hearted side, the NATO Tigermeets serve a serious purpose in ensuring pilots from across the organisation can hone their skills to perfection as they practice a number of scenarios in testing and demanding  operational exercises. We were delighted with the way the event went and we were proud to represent a continuing and strong tradition.”
