There are probably three HH-101s present; we saw two dark and one grey one crossing Marseille as IAM0974 yesterday on the way from Grazzanise up north.

Hello, some 9°Stormo HH-101A’s will operate out of Spangdahlem during the last two weeks of April. The exact number was not told to me but it is likely to be 2-4 helicopters.
