Heard it over me at Cregagh but couldn't see it, what a noise! Nice colour scheme, would be good to see it up at Aldergrove!

One in the log from 4 July was PC-9M callsign IRL269 hex 4CA41A on delivery into Baldonnel as 269 for the Irish Air Corps.

cn 779 ex-HB-HXI cancelled to Ireland 29 June 2017, rumoured built-up from a fuselage surplus to an earlier order as the PC-9 line closed a few years ago.

I would have thought a PC-12 would be more useful than another two-seater but they don't let me near the cheque-book.

Second wave of 4 x Thunderbirds clipping north coast having separated from tanker BLUE 71. "Can't see Belfast" apparently!
