Tour advert for Tiger Meet & Portugal 2020 – Thursday 14th to Monday 18th May 2020
Join us for 4 days spotting in Portugal where the Portuguese Air Force will be hosting the famous Tiger Meet at Beja. We will also be visiting four museums at Alverca, Lisbon, Ovar and Sintra. There should also be time for some wrecks & relics and any general aviation fields we come across. Being based in Lisbon will also give time to catch-up the TAP fleet.
After landing at Lisbon on Thursday 14th evening, we will stay near Lisbon Airport. The Portuguese Air Force have yet to confirm that the Tiger Meet spotter day is to be held on the usual first Friday of the exercise period, but we will head to Beja to spend the day there regardless. Afterwards we will look at Evora, Setabul, Montijo & Alcochete.
The Portuguese Air Force have confirmed that there will an Open Day at Beja on Sunday 17th and so we will go back for that. This way even if we don’t get on the base on the Friday, this can be covered by the Sunday. Being an Open Day should hopefully yield a few more Portuguese Air Force items that are not Tiger Meet related. On returning to Lisbon for Sunday evening, we will take in various W&R in and around the city.
On the Saturday in between, we will visit two of the three Portuguese Air Force Museums (Museu do Ar) at Ovar and Sintra. We will also take in Coimbra, Monte Real, Leiria & Santa Cruz.
All day Friday will be spent at what will hopefully be the Tiger Meet spotters day at Beja. If this doesn’t turn out to be the case, we will watch the action from outside…if the spotters day happens, you’ll need to pre-register to be able to get access on the day. Keep an eye on the website link below….
