The 2003 TMOTA took place at CFB Cold Lake, Alberta Canada
The TMOTA is a biennial gathering of units sharing a Tiger or big cat emblem, or heraldry, in North America, similar to the NATO Tiger Meet in Europe, which celebrated their 50th anniversary this year.
The aim of the TMOTA was simple, attendees gather for a week of intensive flying and socialising to create a strong peacetime bond between NATO partners, as well as a stronger understanding of tactics and weapons systems between the participating nations and units. It started in 2001 and the last meeting was in 2007, it is unsure when the next meeting will happen.
