    According to Flying In Ireland:

    - The Gazelle has gone to Astral Communications in the UK
    - The Dauphins have gone to Rotorleasing Inc in the USA
    - The Marchettis have gone to Airpower Internation Inc also in the States

    i guarantee none will be retained for VIP work or the museum as the four remaining airframes were all put in forty foot containers and driven out the gate.

    All the dauphins have been grounded since about the end of last year, the very last just about making it into the beginning of this year. the airframes aren't worth much, but apparently one is already sold, it's the spares that were the big selling point.

    Hmmm nice idea....would make a certain amount of sense....so probaly wont happen.Perhaps the other 3 were traded to cover the cost of upgrading 1 a/c,many other forces do this.
    Sorry having a walter moment!!!!!!!!

    All going....not viable comercially to be kept on. Might be one retained for a museum...but other than that....No More Dauphins in this neck of the woods.

    boxed and allmost gone. there was a circular to the effect that no AC help was to be provided to the company, even on their own time. the same wasn't said about the dauphins or gazelle?
