With its distinctive "butterfly" tail, the iconic French built Fouga Magister jet trainer was operated by the Light Strike Squadron of the Irish Air Corps for 24 years between 1975 and 1999 and became famous in Ireland as the mount for the Silver Swallows Aerobatic Display Team. This volume outlines the development of the Fouga Magister in France, the first encounter by Irish troops of the aircraft during UN peacekeeping operations in the Congo in 1961 and the subsequent purchase of six Fouga Magisters for the Air Corps in 1975. Complete with anecdotes and reminiscences by those who flew and maintained it, the story of the Silver Swallows and their award winning display at the 1997 Royal International Air Tattoo is described in detail. Containing over 160 photos and with specially commissioned scale drawings and side profiles, this book should appeal to the aviation enthusiast, historian and scale modeller.
