Although you're basically right about them being only Alpha Jets, everybody is still curious WHICH Alpha Jets.
Especially as they are moving between units (and between stickers within the PdF
). For instance, the unmarked 162/8-RJ of EE03.008 USED to be a PdF-bird (F-TERJ).
I hope everybody is still curious, I have the following from my pictures:
E44 / 1
E139 / 3
E20 / 4
E68 / 5 / F-TEMO (serial taken from F-TEMO)
E127 / 5
E129 / 6 / F-TELP
E85 / 7 / F-UGFF
E87 / 9 (Code allocated via method of elimination - I got serial "87", but no code for it and have code "9" in a formation)
The nineth one which was flying next to the formation with the Tigers and was in the "old" PdF colours:
E73 / - / F-TENE (serial taken from F-TENE at Biarritz airport at 20:00 the same day). The other eight were there too but escaped further identification as the Alpha Jets concealed each other.
I hope that helps a bit.
