The part where it says 'MRS' and presumably the south side of that quay is a likely mooring place.

If I'm not mistaken last time the Endurance was moored on the northern quay of MRS.
if it is moored with the front to the west you should be able to see the choppers rolling into the ship ?!

Vessel Endurance was facing East and was loaded from the stern ramp. In theory you have a clear view from the Droogdokweg.

By the way the Endurance is underway from CONUS and is expected to arrive in the French port of La Rochelle on July 7 2020. So the choppers could be in 'open storage' for quite some time.

From where to where? Illesheim, Ramstein, Eindhoven?
+ "Third" doesn't mean that much, better state their lead!

Some advise (for being clear and making uniform):

Call or showing-id / (Observation)time / Location + (a)rrival (d)epart (i)n-between / amount(#) of helo's in formation / types
R.......
R.......

(additional regs per flight would be superb!) :D
