  • Aer Corps at Farnborough

    Was at Farnborough last week filming with the beeb, the Aer Corps Boys were there with a new PC-9 looking well. Weird place though, with guys literally wearing stetsons and cowboy boots mixing with some very dodgy Russians.....

    Was there on sunday took some pics of the PC-9 I think it was 266. I wonder why Pilatus deciced to ask the air corps to do the static display for the PC-9. I also noticed that it was the Irish aircraft that that was getting more attention from the public then the other two Pilatus aircraft. :-patriot:
    It was the year of fire...the year of destruction...the year we took back what was ours.
    It was the year of rebirth...the year of great sadness...the year of pain...and the year of joy.
    It was a new age...It was the end of history.
    It was the year everything changed.

      Probably becuase they are are nice and shiny.Its also probably becuase they are the closest examples to Farnborough. Pilatus might have had to fly in another demonstrator aircraft from elsewhere. Depending upon the registrations it holds it may have been too much trouble to get overflight permission if they are classd as military aircraft by some countries.
      I'm only speculating on that though
