Title: Irish Coast Guard Sikorsky S-61N EI-SAR over Belfast
Post by: Dave on July 27, 2011, 06:19:44 PM
Good evening folks, I just had an Irish Coast Guard S-61 (EI-SAR) fly over my house in Belfast relatively low heading towards the South, I think it probably came from Befast City Airport. Any other info?
