Between May 16th and 27th, 2016 the Spanish Air Force, ALA 15, located at Zaragoza Air Base hosted the NATO Tiger Meet for that year. There were 97 aircraft taking part in the exercise over the two week event making it the largest in event history. In honor of the NATO Tiger Meet most aircraft are given some form of a paint scheme featuring the markings of a tiger. Spain’s EF-18A 15-01/C15-14 from ALA 15 received a very elaborate scheme on its tail and tanks.

The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) F/A-18 Hornet is a supersonic, twin-engine, all-weather fighter and attack aircraft flown by the US Navy, US Marine Corps and other allied nations. The F/A-18 was first flown on November 18, 1978 with the first production flight taking place on April 12, 1980. The first 380 F/A-18s were the A version and in September 1987 production switched to the F/A-18C. Variants A and C are single-seat while B and D variants are tandem-seats. The Hornet can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases and have the capability of in-flight refueling. A total of 1,480 A-D variants were built.
