The first helicopters have flown from La Rochelle, via Cognac to Germany yesterday.

The first flight from La Rochelle consisted of four Apaches and two Chinooks on 13 July in the late morning.
Three Black Hawks (with auxiliary fuel tanks) arrived at Cognac later in the afternoon and seemed to make a night stop. Another Black Hawk acted as a crew ferry between La Rochelle and Cognac.

As today, the 14th, is a National Holiday in France, expect movements to start full swing tomorrow on the 15th of July. The airport of Nevers will be used as a fuel stop on the way to Germany.

Serials of the first two Chinooks that left La Rochelle for Cognac were:
13-08443
14-08162

Please post your logs and sightings here while hunting for them in France and Germany in the upcoming days, just like the very succesful 3rd CAB thread!

hello,
Today we will spent the day at Cognac for PC.21’s & Grobs (and the Army choppers that might refuel here coming from La Rochelle and heading to Nevers/Nancy). Last monday already Some helicopters passed Nevers on their way east.
At the moment 6 HH-60 and a AH-64 are Parked in the north site (probably arrived earlier in the week). According to the locals the first ones will arrive around 11.30. I will update this post later.
