A day in Casement (Irish Air Corps)

Post by Hammerhead »

Spent a day in the Irish Air Corps Base near Dublin during the week, Mainly to get some photos of the last of the Reims FR172 fleet before they are retired soon with the arrival of PC12s to replace them... :sad:
The opportunity was also taken to get a few other shots too.

Good to see the Irish Air Corps on here- those 172s look very smart and that Learjet is lovely!
