The three Tigres were inside the last hangar on the east side
of the static. The Gazelles with codes BPK, BPP and BPS
were inside hangars next to the static line. All six were easily
visible through the windows. All other helicopters mentioned
here, could only be seen if one was able to obtain access to
the flightline. They were all parked inside the three hangars
on the east side of the tarmac. Some of them did move during
the airshow weekend. EC725AP, 2628/BJN flew on Saturday
morning, and was moved in the far side dome hangar by 13:00
hours. SA330Ba, 1186/BRL made a round trip to Cazaux on
Saturday morning, later on this day it was moved inside one of
the hangars.

Outside the local Turbomeca a, partially covered, SA365 was
seen in dark green colours. It is believed that this is F-ZWTM
(SA365MTR, c/n 6005), but confirmation is required.
The air show at Pau provided a good opportunity to log some
new Tigre and EC725 Armeé de Terre helicopters. The atmosphere
at the event was very relaxed, with most hangars at the
static side open for the public. A bit unusual for an ALAT air
show, but still very welcome, were three jet fighters on display
at the static show. Also present was a wide assortment of warbirds.
An interesting item amongst these planes was the former
Moroccan CAP231. The plane was still painted in the famous
red colours, of the display team Marche Verte (Green March).
Also present, but not mentioned in our list, was Harvard replica
