    Hi,


    What sounded like a C-130, but with contrails emanating from the tips of the wings, at around 15,000 - 20,000 feet, maybe a bit lower, just flew over Ballina.

    Not showing on FR24 or Military tracker.

    A military aircraft dumping fuel? It was heading inland though.

    Any thoughts?

    US Navy C130(164598) Callsign "CNV 3404" They requested to go direct to Belfast and then told Shannon they were dumping fuel.
