This is the SI on picture?
The SF was at Le Bourget Air Salon in 2009.

Ok thanks Stanak for your info.
I photographed an EC225 (serial 2752) at Lanveoc in juli 2012. Are the EC225s used like EC725 in the Army for the French Navy?

The other side had the correct 'SF' for STANAK's photo in 2007-10-04 at Reims.
This is my (Facebook) photo of that day .
