New “cat eye” Gripen

The Czech Air Force recently presented a great looking Gripen when they celebrated 10 000 flight hours with the Czech Gripen fleet.

Well in time for the upcoming NATO Tiger Meet 2010, one of their Gripen has got an eye catching special Tiger colour scheme, as the canards has cat eyes all over the upper surfaces.

This makes two Tiger Gripen within the Czech Air Force. There is another from last year still flying with special Tiger markings.
