Excellent log many thanks mate. That confirms that the following were the choppers at Creil;

3 Tigres BHI BJB BJS
2 Gazelles GBJ GEC

I’m not sure where the spare one of each positioned themselves for the flypast, there was obviously a spare Gazelle, AS532, NH90 and Tigre somewhere?

One of the other NH90 EAZ was centrally used for demonstrations.

Shortly after the defilé EC725 Caracal SK departed Villacoublay together with a second EC725 coded SA. Couple minutes later NH90 NFH "23" departed too.
