Air Corps CASA declares emergency
Late this afternoon(30-06-15) about 1815L while on patrol well west of Shannon the crew of Air Corps CN235MP 252 declared an emergency due to smoke in the cockpit and decided to divert to Shannon. The Sligo based Coastguard Sikorsky S92A “Rescue 118” was scrambled to link up with the CN235 and track it in to Shannon. 252 landed OK on RW24 just after 1930L with the rescue services standing by. “Rescue 118” then recovered to its Sligo base.
