Tiger Day XI

Post by Phil Young » Sun Apr 28, 2019 9:27 am

Just a couple of pics from Tiger Day at Bovington as I’m sure there will be better ones put on later! One I’ve called “Supporters” the other I’ve called “The Crowd Goes Wild!”
Weather was “blustery”!

Are they holding the tent so that it does not fly off? :lol:

Yes :!:

Even though it was tied to a tree, held down with sand bags, jerry cans full of water and metal weights, we were all looking over our shoulders when there was a strong gust!

Steve and Chris were on duty during a particularly windy section of the day.

Tiger Day XI (other tanks are available.........). Great day out, thanks to Kian for organising and to Chris for hard labour setting up. The weather Gods were kinder than they might have been, just howling gales to cope with. As the day progressed, the number of exhibitor tents reduced. Unllike hundreds of others, I resisted any urges to run across the car park to worship Tiger 131 as she passed in state but did pay homage to the Comet and Chieftain preparing to enter the arena. Some images of the day (in fact, quite a lot). Denny, Chris, cake much appreciated.

Having survived TankFest (just), trusty Armortek orange tent succumbs to the wind.
Denny pit stop, nothing changes.

With apologies to Tiger lovers. It goes to show how an excess of popular enthusiasm can over-expose something, just as with the Vulcan and XH588 "Vulcan to the Sky (where else?)" and the Spitfire. Other pieces of military hardware are available.

Looking at the Photo of Chris and I, we've been Tangoed! It was, despite the forecast,a good day with a few spots of rain lots of wind and when it was sunny, warm but otherwise quite chilly. A good day to escape to better weather than at home!
