The extensions of Hα filaments that are observed in EUV spectral lines require the presence of cool material in a large volume surrounding these filaments. This material can only be supported by magnetic fields with dips. Such dips can be generated by a sufficiently strong twisting of magnetic flux tubes. In the present paper we have extended earlier work to more realistic magnetic field configurations that are periodic in the x-direction. We derived approximate equilibria for twisted slender flux tubes and determined the region that contains dips. In addition we investigated the effects on our models of the mass loading due to a heavy prominence. Finally we compared our theoretical models with the EUV – observations. We conclude that these types of models are capable of explaining the basic features of the observations.
