Can anybody help me with the tie up of the serials?

From what I can see from the picture this should be the right tie up, stored from East to West on Wednesday evening:

07-05518 (cone shaped rotor cap)
04-05426 (no rotor cap)
05-07010 (circular shaped rotor cap and folded rotors)

Many thanks for your help.

by the way this is an excellent thread, I think one of the best documented CAB deployments :)

Those were indeed the three.

20357 yes it carries striped shield of 3CAB
20360 ?
20417 yes it carries striped shield of 3CAB
20450 ?
Yes all five do.
Thanks Marco and Gideon!

Same question (last one...) for the AH-64s from day 1, based on phtotos I found:
04-05426: 12 CAB badge, triangle
04-05439: just triangle
05-07010: 12 CAB badge, circle
07-05518: B/3-17 Cav Blackjack badge
07-05535: no mks in 2016
08-05548: B/3-17 Cav Blackjack badge
Apart from the 5518 and 5548 those photos were taken before the choppers moved to Rotterdam, so they might have changed the markings when they were "taken over" by 3 CAB. I did see a picture of at least three of the Apaches at EHEH with the Blackjack badge, so at least one more did gain those markings next to 5518 and 5548. Can somebody confirm what (if any) markings they carried when at EHEH or Rotterdam?

EDIT: I also found pictures of former 12 CAB machines 5426 and 5535 taken at EHEH with the Blackjack bage, so at least these two received new markings before going home. I presume this will also be the case for 7010 and 5535, but still confrmation would be great :-)

I do like to add that these rocket pods are interchangable. The ex 1-3rd Avn/12 CAB ones marked in my overview actually have the Marne striped shield on the engine cowling.

What would, in the opinion of those that have already visited, be the best place to see the helo's? Waalhaven Noordzijde and Speedwellstraat have been mentioned, but are these the only or the best options?

The gate of Broekman is a good option too (as mentioned before in this topic)

Till around 11.30 Waalhaven nz. Then on to Ophemertstraat (higher in the air) till around 15.00. Or Droogdokweg if you have more then 500mm available ( lens not something else). And Broekman after 15.00. But that spot can only hold a limited number of people.
If there is no sun you can stay at Waalhaven nz all day.

Could somebody help me identify the Blackhawk which was at the far end of the quay on Friday morning? It's tail had already been folded and it was towed between the containers around 10:00AM.

Inside I can only make out "208" with the final digits blocked by a bag.

Looks more like part of a container “serial number” on the blue container behind the helo. They are put on the containers vertical
