More helicopters were likely present on the many ships involved in the Fleet Review; unfortunately, most ships had their helicopter shelters closed. The helicopters mentioned above were all on the deck during the show.
$ special or anniversary markings, in case of the the AS350s they were carrying “IFR 2013” markings
