Seen through Venetian blind, on the very top of the screenshot are five Nord 2501 Noratlas, probably actually on the civil register for Gyrafrance, later sold to Transvalair.
From the Air and Space Museum (MAE), from left to right : Dassault MD-454 Mystère IVA n°245 (8-NN), Dassault MD-450 OURAGAN n°154 and Dassault Super Mystère B2 n°59 (12-ZS). This last fighter is no longer owned by the MAE but is hosted by the Air Museum of Touchay (Center of France).
