Drug bust at Weston Airport Dublin - Cessna seized (due to crazy paint)

I think the smugglers must have been sampling their own gear to think this paint scheme wouldn't stand out..

Two men have been arrested after heroin, with an estimated street value of 8 million, was seized on a plane at Weston Airport.

Does remind me of a Skydive club paint scheme.

last August a Cessna 182 was busted on a drugs run from Dieppe to Abbeyshrule

it had a reasonably identifiable paint job too G-ZBLT ... although not as good as HA-SKA !
