Hi All,

At 1-05pm today Tuesday January 31 a C-17 Globemaster from the USAF flew over Clane, heading West.

Looks like he came out from Casement Aerodrome (sure he did)

Anybody get a picture? or know what was he doing in Casement? would love to tag him

Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,

It was Boeing C-17A 09-9208 using callsign "Reach 1815", not sure what it was doing in Casement but I'm sure we'll find out in time for next months magazine!

Regards,
Mark

It was there to collect the €1.25 billion that was paid out by the government this week. The bondholders wanted it in hard cash - they wouldn't take our cheques - and it takes a whole lot of cargo hold to store all that cash. :D

Very Good Strike Command,

If you ask me we should have wrote a Cheque and bounce it over to them

But this isnt the site to get into all that

Cheers
