Why is that plane flying so low over Arklow?

Wicklownews has received a number of messages today asking why is there a plane flying so low over South East Wicklow and North Wexford?

Well the answer is, it is a Survey Area Mapping plane.

The ​Tellus survey aircraft continues its 2019 flying season ​over south east Ireland (across counties Carlow, Wexford, Wicklow and neighbouring parts of south Kildare, south east Kilkenny and Waterford) from June until late autumn – weather permitting.
