MAGNIFICENT aerial photographs of Dublin posted on the Defence Forces Facebook page have won the Irish Air Corps a global following.

The Air Corps has published the stunning shots – taken by its photo crews as they left the capital on life-saving and other missions – to show "a different view of some of our national treasures".

Emigrants and ex-pats have posted rave reviews on the social media website.

"These opportune photos were taken by Air Corps photographic crews as their aircraft were departing for operation missions or during approaches into Casement Aerodrome, where we get to cross the city at low levels," the Air Corps said, adding that more photos would be posted soon.
