For the second year in a row the NATO Tiger Meet was held at Ørland in Norway, and for the second year in a row we took a group of enthusiasts there for the spotters day and air show.
In 2013 the Norwegian Air Force was responsible for organising the NATO Tiger Meet for the second year in a row, again at the air base of Ørland near Trondheim. The 2013 Tiger Meet was promising to be a large one, with hardly any cancellations and 4Aviation headed North like last year. This time the group consisted of 25 participants. Contrary to last year we chose for three days near the base, instead of two in 2012. This meant that, apart from the spotters day and the air show there was time to visit the base during a regular operational day. The majority of the group arrived at the airport of Værnes near Trondheim. Two Japanese, a Hungarian and three other Dutch participants had arrived here on separate flights. After having to wait a short time for the luggage of two participants we were soon heading for our hotel in Åfjord, a 2,5 hour drive by coach. This drive included very scenic views and a nice half hour ferry transfer. We arrived at our hotel in the evening and were able to experience the phenomena that the sun would not set.
