Irish Air Corps Reims Rocket 172 R210

Reims Rocket FR172H


Built in 1972 by REIMS Aviation in France under a licensed agreement with Cessna, our Reims Rocket R210 served in the Irish Air Corps for nearly half a century before its retirement in October 2019. In its lifetime, it would have been used on various mission roles, such as border surveillance, bog surveys, wildlife surveys, general transportation flights and even one air ambulance mission!

Arriving in Shannon Aviation Museum in August 2020 in her forever home, she is being admired hour by hour, day after day.
