RAF 7 Sqn in the mix as well with some Chinooks.  They should also have a Puma det participating, but I have no idea if they made it to D-M.

There's been a Puma sitting over at the old Cochise ramp next to Atlantic at KTUS. Been there for a few days.

Not an ideal shot, but I finally crossed paths with the Puma:

Yeah, it's a civvie bird operated by a heli-charter service from Texas.  They have a few Super Pumas that do contract personnel recovery.  They were a last-minute addition to Angel Thunder.  Not sure if other participants dropped or they just wound up short on recovery vehicles for the exercise, but these guys were brought in to fill that gap.
