I must say I am rather curious.. Are you by any chance using an old Nokia phone to write your forum messages ?

:D Lisa, see... amazing aircraft though. I very much have to agree there will be alot of people upset with loss of the Dauphins and the Allouettes.

Well if we are going to be picky and mind our p's and q's :shock: I will throw my 2 bobs worth in, if you are talking about the AW139 its AGUSTA WESTLAND, or the A109 its AGUSTA. :D

Why are the dauphins being retired? I had heard there is problems supporting the compouters etc because they were almost one off types, and some issues around loads they can or cannot carry, but those machines are not nearly as elderly as the A3's.

The above is your answer, FYI they are all gone now they have been stripped and boxed.

Hada good hour watching the Garda heli training over Gormanston last wed. Man that guy was doing some turns and his hover was nigh on perfect. Anyone else catch the show
