On Friday the 16th of July at 10 am, the freshly painted FA-136 “X-Tiger” took the skies. A design created by Johan Wolfs and executed by the KeeBee paintshop and plotter section. An XT-ROAR-DINARY paint for an extraordinary event, our 2021 XTM X-Tiger is now ready to prowl the skies.
We have an update on participants and more…

It is a Freewing F-16C 90mm EDF […]
From the 2nd Nov until the 1st Dec one of our fellow Tigers, together with a colleague from Florennes, and a detachment of around 50 support personnel were participating to the flying course of NATO’s TLP, the Tactical leadership programme. They trained and learned how to prepare, conduct and lead complex missions together with aviators from Poland, France, Spain and Italy.
Een weerkerende traditie zorgt ervoor dat Kleine-Brogel, en dan 31 Sqn in het bijzonder, zijn steentje bijdraagt aan het spektakel op de jaarlijkse Internationale Sanicole Airshow. Een 4-ship Tigers dendert steevast door de lucht op dit evenement.
