There were 4 Air Corps Pilatus flying reasonably low level in tight formation. I was out working in my Garden and they did a few orbits. Looked and sounded fantastic. Although I did wonder why they were doing what they were doing. I suspect it might have been a flypast at some official event?

Yeah, seen it myself. Pretty impressive indeed! Looked to be at about 500 over the Crumlin area.

Seen them out near the Baldonnel myself. I wonder if what you saw over Dublin was something to do with the president inauguration.

Possibly in connection with the inauguration of President Mary McAleese for a further seven year term of office.

Tuesday the 9th was probably a practice session, as they were seen over the city Wednesday 10th as well.

Nice tight formation.

Yeah, but as well I've also observed serveral members of the Search & Rescue fleet over flying my area. Infact I saw the Pilatus over my school that day; in the middle of a rugby training match, we lost because I had my head in the clouds, but I thought the aircraft to be more important than than training at that time... Oh how I suffered later!!!
