You might want to say where, exactly, in France you were, and anything discerning about the aircraft in question (direction flight?)

Oh, and ask on Scramble if you haven't already :)

I was staying at a campsite in Hauteville Sur Mer and the Rafales were heading to East-West.

Question for you. Are you sure that it was an ALAT Super Puma?

Reason why I ask is that there are the two Aeronavale EC.225s 2741 and 2752 that are based at Cherbourg - Maupertus, and they quite often go right down the peninsula and round to St. Malo even. Only problem is that both were flying last week and I could not say which one (or both) was flying on that day.

Could well have been 2741 which I have seen in the area before, thank you.

By the way, I quite often stay on a campsite (Camping L'Etaing des Haizes) just North of La Haye du Puits - up from Coutances then North through Lessay. Lovely site and the staff are very friendly.

Easy access for the "Parachutage" at Sainte-Mere-Eglise in early June.
Cheers, Bob

Hi
There is only 1 EC225 based at Cherbourg which is currently 2741.
(The other one is at Lanveoc- Poulmic)
This came down to Dinan at 11:15 ish and left again about 30 mins later.
Callsign was BELLIGOU A. (or BELLIGA)
These things do track on FR24 and Radarvirtuel.
The Rafales could have been anything.

Andy
