What I seemingly saw was, starting behind the CH-47, in sequence:
- Tigre (left its position around 19:00!?)
- French NH.90 (obviously towed around 19:00)
- 3x Merlin
- EC.120 (plus other stuff ...)
In order:
-Dutch CH-47
-Dutch AH-64
-Belgian Alouette 3
-Belgian MD.900
-Tigre
-French NH.90
-Danish EH.101
-Austrian Alouette 3
-Royal Navy Merlin
-Portuguese EH.101
(the French EC.120 was somewhere in between those, but since that is civil I didn't write it down....).
Hope this helps!
Might be worth noting, that the EC.120 is used for helicopter training in France. Don’t quote me, but I’ve searched online and read they’re used in the French Navy. It was also coded with a ‘T’ too. I guess in a similar way that we have the Grob Tutors in the UK on a ‘G’ reg.

Many thanks, Patrick, Arjan & Mike, this really helps. Not all of them were visible from Kaulille approach , at least not with the early evening light conditions, but the important ones are confirmed and clear now, as I believed having seen them.

Best regards

The French Helidax EC.120's do also wear a number on the nose. The T had something like '16..' if I remember correctly..

The FX-61 in the museum has the tail of the FX-86 (already for a very long time).

Anyone for the three Belgian F-16Bs that were in a line in the shelter area facing the Greek F-16s? Visible through the trees from the end of the crowdline past the Su27.

She's still operational. I just saw pics of it flying this morning. (Thanks to Toon Cox)

Indeed they are used to train the military, flying from Dax. But contrary to the British Tutor fleet, they don't carry roundels or squadron markings, which is reason for me to consider them civil and ignore them. But of course everybody to his (or her) own taste, let's not get off topic too much... ;-)

And FX-86, preserved some 80m downline, has the tail of which aircraft? :?
