All 5 needed by me, anyone know if they returned or what direction they departed?
These heli's must have refuelled twice in UK before arriving at Dishforth but no reports seen.

The French were due to depart to Middle Wallop this morning but were fogged in and were still there when I left just after mid-day , all loaded up and ready to go . There is blue sky up here on Teesside now so they may have a better chance of leaving this afternoon ?
Confirmation of their serials ;
Puma
DCI/CI/1122
DCK/K/1130 - radar 'thimble' on nose
DDK/K/1231 - sand/brown camo

Gazelle
GKA/A/4176
GES/S/4224

and all carry the armee de TERRE logo .

Two Lynx were out on engine runs ; XZ617 and ZG919

Hi Twinstar, looks like they have departed this Morning (Fri). Formation of 3 plus 2 seen but not ID due to the low cloud and murk over head me in South Kirkby, (UPTON way marker ) heading towards Sheffield direction at approx 08:23.
