Something a bit different i hope

This Skin represents one of two aircraft that force landed in Erie, Ireland. Both aircraft were purchased from the British Government and repainted in dark earth and dark green camo with sky blue undersides, and marked with Irish national markings. Twelve more Mk. I aircraft, and six Mk.IIc models were ordered by the Irish government, and it is believed that these aircraft were delivered in a medium sea grey, ocean grey, and dark green camouflage. The Skin has been painted on the Excellent 1.JAVA.Serval Template available elsewhere on IL2skins and bar the New Markings the Skin has had the spinner and underside repainted, as well as the removal of the rear fuselage banding. Have put the skin under Great Britain as Eire is not supported, sorry for that. Enjoy

The modern marking is similar except it is now divided into 3 and the third section is in white /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

What aircraft have the Irish got now in their airforce? I know they had fuga magisters but I believe they have gone? Still got the helicopters? Aluette? (spell cx)

Hi Bonehead,

I think they Magisters are retired now. I saw them when I was about 10 at an airshow in Baldonnel before.
I think we were supposed to get a number of medium lift troop carrrier/ search and rescue helicopters but the budget got slashed. I see the odd Sea King helicopter practicing off Donabate/Malahide, and some times a Daphaine (is that right spelling) flying about. As far as I know we have no jet trainers or fighters/bombers. Maybe someone else can fill me in with specifics?

I know that the RAF have to be called sometimes to emergencies off our west cost becasue we lack the helicopters to mount a long distance rescue. A big thanks to the RAF guys but I think with the amount of coast we have the government should really get the resources together so we don't have to depend on the RAF for S and R in some situations.

If I'm out of date please let me know /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thanks if you want to put the skin on your site feel free too.

The Irish Air Corp still operates the SF260 one of ( privatly owned) i look after in the uk at the momen. As for the Magistairs they may of have retired them by now, we used to have a couple of guys come over to maintain the one we had here for years /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif was real nice to fly in, even with a hangover /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
