It's either a contestant in the MACI annual bash at Baldonnel or it's the American one that flew across the Atlantic last year or so.

Sorry I forgot about the field photo - It's just south of Cashel and in the right light you can see where someone ploughed the words 'Marry Me Aisling' in it.... I guess he took his girlfriend for a heli ride - how romantic is that? :D

Here is one I came across recently...with a family connection... the old-fashioned typesetting is a bit jumbled, but you can see what they wanted to say.. :)

I believe it was belonging to a company called Republic Air Charters, they also had a DH Rapide I seem to Recall..
