    Have the foreign civvy fouga display team taken the Silver Swallows name? Because the PC9M are neither silver, or have a swallow tail...
    Lots of excitement about the M346 visit. Though I was there when the L139 Visited Bal in 2000 also....And the Alpha Jets for the family day a few years before then....

      #BrayAirDisplay

      BBMF though. First time In Ireland I'd say.
      After a two-year hiatus the award-winning and hugely popular #BrayAirDisplay* will make a welcome return this summer. And it will be back bigger and better than ever with an incredible lineup including none other than the world-famous Red Arrows. The free, family event is one of the most popular air shows in Europe and Ireland’s biggest air festival, attracting thousands to the Co. Wicklow seaside town to marvel at amazing aerobatics. This year’s event will see the #BrayAirDisplay team up with the Irish Air Corps who are celebrating 100 years of Irish military aviation. We are really excited to welcome the RAF's Battle of Britain Memorial Flight to Irish skies. Seeing the iconic and historic Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane fly information will be very special and unique. The line-up will also include regular Bray visitors, the Royal Jordanian Falcons and the impressive M-346 Leonardo jet.

      As well as the entertainment in the sky there’s plenty of action on the ground; where you can enjoy the thrills and spills of the Seafront Funfair, dine alfresco at our Food Village or even experience a breath-taking helicopter ride over Bray Head throughout the festival weekend, which kicks off on Saturday, July 23rd with the spectacular return of the #BrayAirDisplay on Sunday, July 24th 2022.

        Is the M-346 is being sent by Leonardo as part of their advertising? Or is someone dropping hints?

              From the latest Cosantoir:
              It is, therefore, with great personal and professional pride that I have been afforded the honoured position of leading the Irish Air Corps PC-9M aerobatic display team in this, our Centenary year. To add to the honour, 2022 will see the nationally and internationally recognised brand of the Silver Swallows relaunched for this PC-9M display team. While we may not have the iconic V-shaped “swallows” tail, we have built a formation display for this season playing tribute to our heritage and roots in Irish military aviation. The team consists of pilots and technicians from the FTS, assisted by all other operational and support elements of the Air Corps. Without completely spoiling the show, the ethos of the Silver Swallows will be very much to the fore from the technical support to the flying display in 2022. The original concept of a safe, graceful display of 4-ship formation aerobatics coupled with dynamic manoeuvres interspersed throughout, all maintained within close proximity of the display axis, were key to our planning and preparation of the 2022 display season. It is every member of the teams wish to continue the story of the Silver Swallows as ambassadors to Ireland and Irish aviation heritage, commemorating the past, celebrating the present and inspiring the future.
              For now, everything hangs on the CoDF report, which is published, but after discussion with parties in government will probably commence being implemented in May or June.
