Stop flying over peoples gafs and schools all day, theres no war on Are you sure it's our door 😅😅 With Covid fiasco everything is becoming slightly UNHINGED. TommyTBone69 bit of a hiccup. But we'll still beat the shit out of ye The pilot was mortified, he said he just wanted the ground to open up. It's our only helicopter, what'll we do now?

..... I so want to blame Trump.... Cause he blames everyone and everything else.. 🤷‍♀️ That’s a claim Oopsy daisies! NickyOhG 👀👀 things do be falling out of the sky anyway It All Stops With LeoVaradkar & FineGael 'I guess it could be one of ours Sarge, hard to say for sure' It was one of them fecking hen harriers

Faulty goods, did they keep the receipt What is he checking...... Is he making sure its his door 😅😅 I saw the door falling from a helicopter in Galway airshow 2007. Mistakes are made. Learn from them and continue to stay safe. Thanks for all you do. Dormez vous? There is a large hole were the door used to be. The garda are looking into it and 😏

Was the helicopter made in Ireland? “Yes private, that does indeed appear to be a door” Haunted no one killed Door gunner ok Captain: 'Hmmmm that would explain the draught when landing at Baldonnel...' Pity it didn't fall on the HQ of a certain teacher's union who are throwing a strop again! Education opens doors

Just as well the kids weren’t on the school grounds at the time That life saving mission could have turned into something else..... Buying shite off done deal again lads governmentSavingsScheme Dads army Happened in Galway also at the airshow a few years back. Irish army, what a joke.. I once lost the back door off my trailer, but how can you lose a door from a helicopter?

Green door, what's that secret you're keeping? One blessing for the schools being closed. Am I remembering wrong, or is this not the first time something similar has happened? The US would give us a fleet for zero, Jesus ask. Jesus, hope all are Safe. Was it an open and shut investigation? Chicken Little was telling the truth!

Good to know we’re in safe hands!
