Background story

October 4 until October 20 2010 the NATO Tiger Association conducted the annual Tiger Meet. Host this year was the 313 Squadron Royal Netherland Airforce (RNLAF) at Volkel Air Base. Like normally to those events the 321 Tigers were granted to transform one of "their" ECR Tornados into a "Tigerjet".

Designer of this special painting was for the second time in row the professional designer Anton Kerner. With his design and the pixel-type scheme he wanted for the first time go on to a new evolution stage, an approach towards Tiger-Tornado 2.0 - so to say - in close relation to the WWW.

Intentionally this time NO Tigerjet to be touched was created which has many nice details but which can only be seen and recognized by somebody standing right in front of it. The "normal spotter" is positioned along the fence of the airfield and stares through the optics of his camera watching airplanes, parking, taxiing, taking off and landing. Exactly for this moment this design was created and exactly then the jet has to look good. Many people didn't recognize or understand this approach by Anton Kerner so a rather kontroversal discussion started in the spotter scene and the Tigerjet was given the nickname "Lego Bomber". Anton Kerner commented this as follows: "... finally I am convinced that this is not only a tigerjet with a special painting but already an art object. The form of the airplane together with the minimalistic forms message of the paint cover, construct a complete artwork which - typical for modern art - polarizes in a strong way. It really is admirable that the squadron showed such a large level of courage and open mindedness to realize this extreme design outside of each "Tigerjet norm".
