Organized by the 1st Squadron “Stingers” based at Florennes, the exercise involved Italian Air Force and Spanish Air Force Eurofighters, Hellenic Air Force F-4E Phantoms, Polish Air Force Mig-29s and RAF Hawks.
Together with the Tactical Weapon Meet the 1st Squadron celebrated their centenary.
The Tactical Weapon Meet is mainly aimed at the training of young pilots. For them, this is an excellent opportunity to qualify as 2-ship leader: leader of a twin-patrol patrol. In the international context, they also learn a lot from each other and learn to know each other’s aircraft, abilities and limitations.
