Numerous Fennecs and PC21s were also flying around the city from Villlacoublay, a call was made to get many returning;
=============
01/709-FC PC-21
02/709-FD PC-21
05/709-FG PC-21

Note that FG was pinging as FC, FD as FF on ADSB, so they weren’t reliable for anybody taking them off radar apps.

FH & FF were also present not seen by me.

The Mirage 2000N, MS760, and new Gazelle and Puma preserved were also noted.


We didn’t bother with Creil, but there were at least 2 X NH90s, 1 x AS532UL & 1 x Tigre extra, accordingly they should have been...

EAZ + 1 reported as EBH?, ? , BHI

Nice list, thank you. It looks like the 4-FS is still wearing the 6.GCIII/7 from EC 01.007??

It should actually be F-AYXG and I have amended accordingly. Many thanks for the PdF I didn’t really pay much attention to them.

Hi Ben,

we went to Creil after the parade and saw EBE, EBL, EBM and EBO depart, those were the only four left.
The others may have left to other spots around Paris already before today as four were seen on the ramp in the morning.

Cheers mate appreciate it. A friend visited first thing this morning and reported 6, one of which was EAZ which as you rightly said was stationed elsewhere in Paris during the parade. Guess that leaves just the one unaccounted for

We had on the 14th in the morning at Creil the NH-90 EAJ, EBL, EBE and EBM. So only 4 on the flightline that morning.

Further the AS532 CGN, CGJ and CHC and the Gazelle GBJ.

The Tigres BJS, BJB plus 1

I watched television, France2, and EAZ was used in some demonstration at a military barracks around Paris flying off with a 'wounded' soldier.

There were 6 NH.90 at 7 am on the 14th, the remaining two were at the very fay end of the ramp.
Can you confirm GBJ was the single Gazelle next to the Tigres?

As far as I’m aware there were only three Cougars. Can anybody confirm if CGN/CGW which one is the addition?

I’m guessing one is a mis-pole?
