Video: Join the Air Corps for a flypast in 360°

Want to experience a formation flypast in a PC9 flown by the instructors of the Air Corps’ Flying Training School? Here’s a 360 degree view of the Air Corps flypast over the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham.

The National Day of Commemoration commemorates all Irishmen and Irishwomen who died in past wars or on service with the United Nations. The ceremony is held each year in the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham. It is attended by an Uactaráin, an Taoiseach and other members of the Government, members of the Oireachtas, the Council of State, the Diplomatic Corps, the Judiciary, relatives of 1916 leaders, next-of-kin of those who died on service with the UN, Northern Ireland representatives and a wide cross-section of the community, including ex-servicemen and ex-servicewomen.

The ceremony concludes with the playing of the National Anthem and a flypast. Take a seat on board
