An embarrassing incident involving an Air Corps plane scheduled to fly Taoiseach Micheál Martin from Brussels was the latest in a series of failures by the Department of Defence to properly attend to its duties involving Government personnel carrying out State business abroad.

The issue arose in February when the Learjet used for such things was out of commission; a second plane we also own had a technical issue grounding it and a small but unsuitable third aircraft had to be sent out instead.
