While working near Salthill today a Air Corps Pilatus passed low level over the residential area I was working in. It flew about 1 mile away (Out of my vision but I could hear it) before passing back again, at equally low level. What a fantastic aircraft they are.
My question is this, why was it in GAlway?? We only usually see the Pilatus our way for the Salthill Airshow, or maybe a one off display, ie Leavally earlier this year.
I know it's not an important topic this but I am just a little curious!!

They seem to be aimed at the military though(pardon pun).
How mush better is this colour scheme though! Cant believe our ones are poxy grey like.

Or students and slightly lost
Id find it extremely difficult to be lost on this Island, especially in the PC-9M as it's equipped with a comprehensive, fully tandem-capable VFR/IFR avionics package for navigation, communication and identification, using state of the art equipment. The IAC PC-9M's feature modern avionics including a Head Up Display (HUD) and Electronic Flight Instrumentation System (EFIS) where primary instruments are displayed.
