From now on you are able to register for the #NTM2015 #Spottersday at Konya AB, Turkey.

For the price of €40 / spotter, you will be able to get acces to the base on both Thursday 7 and Friday 8 May 2015 (single day tickets are NOT available)

Due to an intensive screening procedure, no registrations will be accepted after 15 March 2015!

more information, and the registration form can be found by following this link

Don, thanks for this information.

Do you know if it is allowed to take pictures from outside the base during the other days ?
So far this was never a problem at other Tiger Meets but since it's in Turkye we want to be sure....

Thanks a lot!

kind regards,
Peter

I don't know if Don can answer, but do you (or anybody) can tell what happens to the €40 I've already been asked to pay in case of admittance denial?

TIA

Gabriele, You'll get it back. Hopefully you're not on any "watch lists" or wanted by some police force. Cheers, Don

Hello there,

I have registered for the spotters days and just received my paypal invoice. The only problem is my invoice isn't in English so I can't read it. Does anyone know who I can email so maybe I can get my invoice translated into English?

Thanks,

Trevor

To Hawkeye67. I've received an interim answer ("will have to check w/civil authorities"). So they're working on a response. They have a very rigid chain of command, even for such a mundane question as ours. I'll update when I find out more. Cheers, Don

Besides all question regarding registration. This might be interesting too, information regarding participants ...

192 Filo 5x F-16C/D ( so far the only unit confirmed on natotigers.org website )

Hey Rene, I just checked with our webmaster and he says that normally that list is only known a week or two before the Meet. I'm going to the Main Planning Conference at the end of this month and I know I'll be joined by lots of Tiger Sqn reps. True, a few favorites (31, 59/1, 11f) have stated they won't be there due to ops commitments. A couple more are in the "maybe" category. I'm telling folks, not to worry, we've had ups and down in our 54 year history concerning #s of Sqns participating (the average is 11.8 Sqns). So yeah we know we won't reach the high of 18 we reached last year. But for us, all the trappings of a Tiger Meet will be present (excellent training, painted acft, good social program, base open door, support of our tiger fans, etc). Cheers, Don Senior Advisor NTA
