Normally a few helicopters land in Paris, but can somebody tell me where this is?
What's a good spot to take good pictures from the flypast?

They will land at the Esplanade des Invalides. This is also the best spot to take pictures of the flypast itself.
That's where I've been for the past 3 years.

Thanks for the information. Does anybody know from which base(s) the aircraft will operate from during rehearsal and "show day"? All from their hombases or "concentrated" on the airbases "around" Paris? (Creil for example?)

In the past few years they have used Chateudun and Evreux.

Usually the transports fly from their own base.
Later in the day there are also parajumps above the city, for this there are normally 2 Pumas at Paris Heliport - Issy-les-Moulineaux.

Can you easy parc your car near Invalides, or is it better to parc somewhere else and take the metro.
Anyone with experience ?

Don't come by car. The vast majority of the city center will be closed to traffic. So better to parc close to the Boulevard Peripherique and continue by public transport.
