Friday 8 May started like the Thursday did. Breakfast, buses being ready on time, the checks, etc. The only difference was that all knew that the sun that was still lighting the sky in the morning would not be around for long. The day started with a CN235 and a C-130 of the Turkish Air Force. The ‘Daggers’ of 132 Filo, the aggressor squadron of Konya that was flying Red Air missions for the Tiger Meet, took off first today. While the Tiger Meet participants where starting up their engines and the Italian AB-212s flew a small circuit around the base, the weather deteriorated rapidly. It soon became clear that the wave was cancelled and that serious amounts of rain and hail were underway. The entire platform was emptied though and all aircraft were parked in shelters or hangars. This gave all (that had not fled the area for the rain) the option to capture all aircraft one more time. While sheltering for the rain in a shelter, also used for catering purposes, it was announced that the program was over due to the bad weather. Everybody was kindly asked to board the buses again towards the exit of the base. While the number of thank you´s for the Turkish Air Force could not be counted anymore we were picked up again by or buses and headed back to Konya. Despite the weather almost everybody explored the city on the afternoon. In the evening a large part of the group gathered for a final meal in the city. The evening ended early for most , since we would be leaving quite early the next day.
