Drivers alerted to low-flying helicopters

MOTORISTS in Dublin were warned yesterday not to be distracted by low-flying helicopters surveying train lines.

Commissioned by Irish Rail and undertaken by PDG Helicopters and Irish Helicopters, the aircraft are scanning DART overhead lines with a thermal imaging camera and checking for overheated parts.

"The aircraft will be flying quite low so people should be cautious," said Ian Baird from Irish Helicopters.
