1999 - Tiger Oiler colours the 46+48 after our
design and painting specialist Lukas leaves the squadron for a "short" break to Sheppard
AFB, USA. As a model Oiler uses the blurred copy of a picture of a rare mutation
(or possible gen manipulated side line) of a Sibiric Tiger. The assertion it might be the
marking of a cross-breeding between african giraffe and indian tiger is by proof just the
imputation of an other - not in tigermeets participating - squadron of the Lechfeld.
