NATO Tiger Meet: The Roaring Mirage
In 2003, the world was introduced to a true work of art during the NATO Tiger Meet—an annual multi-national training exercise. The Mirage 2000RDI 83/12-YL, hailing from EC 1/12, sported one of the most remarkable aircraft paint jobs ever seen. The attention to detail, down to the glint in the tiger’s eye, is astounding. Although this Mirage faced an unfortunate breakdown before its mission, the skies welcomed another fighter jet with the eyes of an animal, ready to soar without a hitch.
