Definitely the French ones. I saw them depart from Odiham with the Chinook.

Chinook and 2 presumed Fennecs overflew St Pauls Cathedral, London, mid afternoon today; briefly glimpsed from office window :S

Chinook ZH777 and one of the Fennec's (UZ I think) did a touch and go at the Helicopter museum Weston Super Mare, this afternoon, while the other Fennec due a sort of flypast.
