the EAALAT SA341 Gazelle helicopters.

As usual, the organization at Le Luc managed to put up a fine
show. Lots of ALAT helicopters could be logged, and the photo
opportunities were fine as well as the flight lines are concerned.
As could be expected in the Provence, the weather was excellent
with lots of sunshine. Even though listed here with different
unit designations, the French and German Tiger attack helicopters
are operated by a joint training unit at this base. The Germans
refer to this unit as Deutsch/Französisches Heeresfliegerausbildungszentrum
Tiger (D/F HFlgAusbZ Tiger), while the French refer to this unit as 
Ecole France-Allemande (EFA).
