#Real-Life Drag and Drop

A simple Irish Air Corps repaint of the Cessna 172 Skyhawk (Gauge and G1000), based on Reims Rocket FR172H livery of 104 Squadron Irish Air Corps. The Air Corps operated a total of 9 Reims Rocket’s from 1972 until 2019 when the final 5 were retired. Throughout their service life they accumulated 63,578 flight hours.
The main intended role of the aircraft was for Border surveillance flights during the Troubles, as well as pilot training, aerial reconnaissance, prisoner escorts, explosive escorts, aerial photography, ATC training, in-shore maritime surveillance patrols, parachuting, target towing, display flying, bog surveys, wildlife surveys, and general transportation flights.

    Interior textures seem to have broken with the Ireland/UK update, but great scheme regardles!

    243 was the only one with wheel fairings. Nice job though, thank you!

    Thank you for this paint job. Regarding the steam gauge version, maybe you can reach out to USAFNukem (download before your one) and see if he would use your textures to create the older Cessna variant.
