    Irish Air Corps not Irish Air Force.

    The Irish Air Corps retired their Fouga CM170 Super Magisters in 1997 (The type operated by the French Air Display team at the weekend.) They were replaced by Pilatus PC9 Turboprop (Propellor) Advanced Trainers.

    The only Jet aircraft operated by Irish Air Corps is the Learjet 45, operated in the Air Ambulance and VIP transport role.

    U2 don’t pay their taxes in Ireland so it’d be an insult were it the Irish Air Corps.
