                                                            IMPORTANT NOTICE

            Almost every site listed, including some mountains, is on private property and in a lot of cases the owners home.

            Inclusion of a site in this database, DOES NOT GRANT RIGHT OF ACCESS. If you wish to gain access to any site,

            you must first request permission from the owner or the operator. If their answer is NO, please respect their decision.

 

 

                                                            THE DATABASE

                                                            The “Aviation Sites in Ireland” database, is intended to be the foundation of an on-going

                                                            historic listing of all sites in Ireland, from the 1780’s balloon era, to-date, listing sites used

                                                            for aviation purposes of any discription. Many sites have extreamly little known about them,

                                                            while many more are at present unknown to us. If you can add to the list, we would be

                                                            delighted to hear from you. Dispite our best efforts, errors may be found in a database of

                                                            this size, when you spot them, please let us know by using the CONTACT US” link on the

                                                            home page. We would be oblidged if you would pass on any new information you may

                                                            have or knowledge of, also using this link.

 

                                                            user information for the “NotesLogsLists” file

                                                            Where possible, each site contains information related to the location.

                                                            The info is gathered from many different sources. It is then collated into coherent text and

                                                            added to the file. Some sites show no data at all, while others have volumes to choose

                                                            from. Where large amounts of “historic info” is readily available. Rather than just “copy &

                                                            paste”  this will be condenced into usable concise data to give an overall image of the use

                                                            and activity that took place at the location.

 

            The majority of the file is not yet be available online because it still contains personal data. The first sections are in place, but even these

            still need some work. Plan is to start at the top with ID 0001 and work down, as sections of the file are edited, upgraded, updated and personal

            info deleted, they will be made available on the database. It will probably take many years to show the complete file. Reference will occasionally

            be made to sites/locations/data that is further down the un-edited section of the list. You may be able to locate some of the information related

            to these sites on the SITEDATA file.   

 

 

            DATES for BASED, STORED & VISITING AIRCRAFT

                                                            There are two date columns. Dates in the first column show probabal arrival, date of registration or date noted at that location.

                                                            A before or after the date indicates date aircraft probably arrived.                       1st date column

                                                            R before or after the date indicates date of registration.                                      1st date column

                                                            N before or after the date indicates aircraft noted as based, stored or visiting.     1st date column

 

                                                            Second date column indicate date of departure or cancelled registration.

                                                            D before or after the date indicates probabal date of departure.                          2nd date column

                                                            X before or after the date indicates date of cancelled registration                        2nd date column

                                                            columns U to AC may show short notes of related information.

 

            SITE NAMES                         There are three NAME categories

                                                            P=primary names          usually the townland in which the site is located (named as per Ordnance Survey maps) or sometimes a location within a

                                                                                                townland. P will not be indicated below. Primary names will show as much site data and detail text as possible. 

                                                            O=other names             various other area names such as the nearest town and sometimes the site owners name may be used as Other Names

                                                                                                and will direct the user to the Primary name including it’s ID number. O will NOT be indicated below. 

                                                            A=alternative spelling    refers to local or popular spelling of that site name and is the only one of the three that will be indicated on the list below

                                                                                                with an A after the site name.

                                                                                                Alternative names will direct the user to the Primary name including it’s ID number. 

 

            LONE BLACK LINES                                                in the file below are separators between LOGS and normal traffic

 

            LIVE or SLEEPING AIRCRAFT

                                                            Reference is made in the NotesLogsLists file to aircraft as “Active” or “Current”.

                                                            Active obviously means that the aircraft is in normal flying condition.

                                                            Current means that the aircraft or parts of it are still extent, complete or dismantled, but not active for any number of reasons and usually stored

                                                            or possibly scrapped with parts still at this location. When aircraft cease to exsist in any form, they are of-course no longer current.

                                                            If there is no claimed ownership of the Current remains of an airframe, then the last known registered owners will be listed as the owners, even if

                                                            the registeration has been X’ed (cancelled)

 

            BASED/VISITING AIRCRAFT

                                                            Many of the early lists for the different landing sites were supplied by Roger D.Caird. It is intended to include full details of all flying equipment

                                                            that was based in or visited Ireland over the same time line, not as a separate listing, but noted only at it’s based or visiting location.

                                                            However main airports such as Dublin/Collinstown-Cork/Ballygarvan-Belfast/Aldergrove & Belfast/Sydenham MAY show based aircraft-plus some

                                                            photos of visitors.

 

            REGISTRATIONS                 You will note some registrations show the number 2 directly after the letters. This indicates that this is the second allocation of these marks to an

                                                            airframe, which probably means the first allocation was not taken up and were then re-allocated to this airframe. On at least one occasion the

                                                            number 3 is used to show that this is the third time these marks were allocated and then finally used.

 

            POSTCODES                        ln some cases, aircraft previously based in the UK will show the UK postcode address from which they arrived. It will appear on the left at the start

                                                            of the row. this is a new addition - very few postcodes have yet been added.

                                                            Authorities in the Republic of Ireland have recently introduced postcodes here. They will NOT be used on the database because each separate code

                                                            pinpoints one single building only. Unlike the UK system where a code shows a cluster of about 25 buildings per code and does not identify individual

                                                            buildings.

 

            PHOTOS                                P3 indicates “Hugo’s” photo’s taken at that location and will appear on the extream left of the text line. These are FREE to download and use as you

                                                            wish, only request is make them attributal to Hugo Wilhare. figure indicates the number of available photos of the subject taken on the same day.

                                                            P-Indicates donated photos will also appear on the extream left of the text line. Please any marked with a red P ARE NOT FREE TO DOWNLOAD

                                                            WITHOUT OWNERS PERMISSION.

                                                            this is a new addition - very few indicators have yet been added

            Please note: The database is not suitable for use as an Aerial Navigational Aid in the location of aviation sites. It is primarily set out for use by road. The grid reference and

            co-ordinates are taken directly from OSI-OSNI & Google maps for each site, they could in fact be transferred to a GPS unit for use in locating aviation sites from the air.

            But please note there is no guarantee that the grid’s or co-ords used are correct.

                                                                                                                                                                                                           

 

            AVIATION SITE TYPES in IRELAND

 

            AERODROME                       Description used, probably since before the First World War, to describe a location set aside

                                                            primarily for the use of aeroplanes.  In everyday use until 1942, when Winston Churchill decreed

                                                            that henceforth all “Aerodromes” will be re-titled “Airfield” following the US entry into the European

                                                            war. Some publications still use the term “Aerodrome”, more out of nostalgia, rather than for any

                                                            hope of bringing the title back into general use.

 

            AIRPORT                               Civil passenger and freight operations. Some airports also supported military bases.

 

            AIRFIELD                               Since 1942, the title of “Airfield” can discribe any site from a large military aviation base,

                                                            right down to a private site with a single runway, with one hanger and training facilities.

 

            AIRSTRIP                               Usually, private grass strip/s, from which one or more fixed wing aircraft operate. Some airstrip’s

                                                            do have hard landing area’s, such as compacted gravel coated with grass, a mixture of grass and

                                                            tarmac, through to full tarmac. but no training.

 

            EMERGENCY LANDING GROUND

                                                            Basically, a military landing ground, strategically positioned so as to receive aircraft in distress,

                                                            and as a location to land at, when the home base is not available, for any reason.

           

            FIELD STRIP                         One off site, used only a couple of times, mostly before the second world war.

                                                            See flying circus reference below. The same title is now used for similar site’s to-day

           

            LANDING GROUND             Military version of the “AIRSTRIP”, title also used pre World War Two for some private site’s.

           

            LANDING STRIP                   Little used. Not an Airfield nor an Airstrip. No Facilities.

           

            MICROLIGHT AIRSTRIP     Similar to airstrip, but generally with a shorter landing/ take-off grass area, some are not

                                                            suitable for some group 1 fixed wing aircraft.

           

            MODEL FLYING SITE          Some operators prefer to use the term “Radio Controlled” rather than “Model” for the site type.

 

            TEMPORARY LANDING GROUND

                                                            As the title states a temporary version of the military landing ground.

           

           

            BEACH STRIP                       This term is used for ANY aviation activity on sand.

           

            HANG-GLIDER / PARAGLIDER SITE

                                                            Self explanatory.

           

           

            HEILPORT                             Civil passenger and freight operations and/or a full helicopter maintenance facility.

           

            HELIPAD                                This title covers many private sites, from those with dedicated hard landing areas and marked

                                                            with a  H, to the open grass area, with no markings, but with multiple helicopter activity.

 

            HELISTOP                             Title was used for the landing site at NORTH WALL, Dublin, (equated to the bus-stop). I thought

                                                            it would be a more appropriate for the sites that would see just one or two visitors, and sometimes

                                                            never be used again.

                                                            In 2004 when we decided to include helistops in the database, apart from the commercial operators

                                                            like Irish Helicopters and Celtic, there were only about 30 or so (private) helicopters in the Republic.

                                                            At the same time Northern Ireland only had a handful of private helicopters, but from 2005 on they

                                                            also experienced the same massive increase in helicopter traffic as did the Republic.

                                                            Our thinking was that a helistop could turn out to be a helipad even if seldom used and that was still

                                                            the same in 2006  when we had 130+ privately owned Irish registered helicopters in the Republic

                                                            and almost as many carrying foreign registrations. Also those number‘s were increasing on a daily basis.

                                                            With that volume of helicopter traffic it did seem ridiculous to keep adding helistops to the database,

                                                            but as we have stated above there was always the possibility that a helipad may materilise from a

                                                            helistop.

                                                            Obviously we were unable to keep up with the vast majority of helistop site’s. But we will record those

                                                            that come to our attention. 

                                                            By 2009 helicopter operations both North and South had decreased dramatically as did helistop sites,

                                                            which eased this particular problem.

 

            HELIBASE                             This is our definition of all military helicopter landing sites, large and small. Title used to show that

                                                            it is a military site only and does not reflect its size.  

           

            MARINE                                 Area of water based aviation. All private, civilian and military water based aviation activity will be

                                                            titled “MARINE”, and may be on a canal, river, lake, lough or on the open sea around the Irish coast.

           

            BALLOON BASE                  Home location of the balloon, and usually not a launch site.

           

            BALLOON LAUNCH SITE   Self explanatory.

           

            FREE FALL PARACHUTE DROP ZONE

                                                            Special landing area used by parachutists. Can be located on or off-airfield. Also known as FFPDZ

           

           

            GLIDER- FIELD/ AIRSTRIP/ BEACH STRIP

                                                            Location of glider activity. Some sites operate powered aircraft as tugs, while others use,

                                                            or have used, cables and or vehicles as launch systems

           

            AIRSHIP PATROL STATION

                                                            First World War military airships base.

 

            KITE BALLOON STATION

                                                            First World War kite balloons were inflated at these sites, and transferred to warships,

                                                            attached to the ship by a winch system and used as lookout points from high above the deck.

 

            AIRSHIP MOORING-OUT STATION         

                                                            First World War site used for the holding of and re-supply of airships away from their base stations.  

 

            DECOY SITES                       Second World War sites constructed in open country in order to resemble nearby airfields and

                                                            to attract enemy action away from the real sites.

 

            STARFISH SITES                 Set up in remote areas in order to convince enemy night bomber crews that they were attacking

                                                            built-up or other strategic locations, used during Second World War.

 

            FLYING CIRCUS SITES       We have also referred to the sites, used by the flying circus and display groups of  the 1930’s,

                                                            as Field strip’s, because at that time the majority of private site’s were known as aerodrome’s

                                                            or landing ground’s. Title’s that seemed inappropriate for site’s that would in all probability see

                                                            very little use.

 

            PARAMOTOR SITES           These sites are normally suitable unprepared fields, with approaches free from obstacles.

                                                            All take off’s and landings are obviously into wind. At least 100m of a clear level run is required

                                                            with no obstacles for safe operations. 

                                                            Paramoter aircraft come in two different types.  The first has a power pack strapped on the back

                                                            of the operator and when the parachute deploys, is foot launched . As such they are not required

                                                            to carry a civil aircraft registration in the UK. These aircraft are also exempted from registration in

                                                            the Republic of Ireland. Initially the sites we have placed on the database are primarily related to

                                                            this type of paramotor. The second paramotor type carries the power pack on a frame, which may

                                                            contain one or two seats and also a wheeled undercarriage. In this configuration the owner is

                                                            oblidged to apply for and display the UK civil aircraft registration on the aircraft. Not sure if the

                                                            (Irish) IAA also have such a requirement.

 

            OFF-SHORE                          This term is used for sea landings, accidents or incidents that have taken place around the coast

                                                            of the island of Ireland. As the majority of these took place prior to the 1960’s, we have generally

                                                            kept to within the old three mile limit from the coast, but depending on the incidents, we may cover

                                                            activity futher out from the coast.

           

            LOOK UP-NO BASE HERE This section is located at the bottom of the NotesLogsLists file and is an Attempt at some coverage

                                                            of LOW LEVEL overflights, plus air shows or flying displays away from airfields, airports etc, such

                                                            as Bray, Salthill & Portrush.

 

            OTHER SITES                       The database was set up in this manner so as to accommodate sites of ANY description related

                                                            to aviation in Ireland. It will be noticed that some site types used in the NotesLogsLists file are not

                                                            shown in the site types list above-this is intentional as some of these sites are one off’s while some

                                                            others are not frequently used. I have tried to make the site type as disctiptave as possible.

                                                                                                                                                      

 

                                                            As you scroll down the list you will notice the columns are slightly distorted. We have tried to

                                                correct this minor glitch by using a table insert. The table insert proved extreamly awkward and

                                                very time consuming, so will not be utilised. But dispite this problem, all text and information is

                                                complete and in context. Maybe a solution will be found soon to correct the annoying distortion.

                                Extract by CFI George Farrah  from Abbeyshrule 2- 21st Airshow 1992 [booklet]

                                Abbeyshrule 1

                                The fact that I was born and reared in Abbey­shrule meant that I couldn’t have escaped the flying bug. From a

                                very early age I was fascinated by aeroplanes. Perhaps I was one of the luckier ones, for my dream came

                                true in the mid 1950’s when a couple of Tiger Moths came to a sports event in Abbeyshrule, which incidentally

                                was held in the same field in which the present airfield Abbeyshrule 2 is located. Then I remember Tiger Moths

                                landing in the late Frank Kenny’s field in Castlewilder. As I had no bicycle at the time, so I had to  walk to the bog

                                bridge which is situated at the east end of the present airfield and look across the River Inny at what I thought at

                                the time were two giant aeroplanes on the ground, as they looked so small in the air. see Abbeyshrule 4  1502.

                                The following year (1957) the late Jimmy Byrne and three other pilots bought a B.A. Swallow, El-AGH, and kept it in

                                Abbeyshrule on Jimmy’s farm. Legend has it that the Swallow was being trans­ported to Abbeyshrule by road,

                                and a few miles from Abbeyshrule it was removed from the lorry, rigged in a field and flown into Abbeyshrule

                                by Jimmy.

                                Things were only to get better for me when the late Johnny Farrell from Doughill bought a Tiger Moth from

                                John Kerr Jnr of Athboy (EI-AHJ, 06.11.1956-30.08.1958) He kept it in an open hanger in Abbeyshrule. As a

                                boy, I was very fortunate that I had to pass the airfield on my way to school and could look across the hedge

                                at the Tiger, morning and evening.

                                The Swallow was kept in an old Nissen hut as it’s wings could be folded back. Some of the other children and I

                                helped to take the Swallow out of the hut. Often I helped to stick on patches with red dope which Jimmy kept in

                                the hut, and I’d go down to McGoey’s petrol pump for a five-gallon drum of petrol which cost £1. Jimmy was an

                                ace pilot and whenever he got the opportunity to fly the Tiger’ he would give us the thrill of our lives.

                                In 1957 Abbeyshrule had its first Air Display.  Aircraft included Tiger Moths, Swallows, Austers, Miles Messengers

                                and a de Havilland Dragon which was used to give joy flights at five shillings per head. I was longing for a flight,

                                but unfortunately I didn’t have five shillings. Also at the Display there was a paracute descent by Freddie Bond.

                                Sadly the flying stopped in the late 1950s and was not revived until the early 1970’s, when Abbeyshrule Aero Club

                                formed and  Rallye El-ATS, was purchased.

                                I took my first flying lesson on the 17th June, 1973 with John Barkel, an ex-RAF Wing Com­mander who came

                                to Abbeyshrule as a flying instructor in 1972. My first solo flight on the 21st  October, 1973 was the greatest

                                experience of my life. Unfortunately, John Barkel left Abbeyshrule in mid 1974, which meant we were flying with

                                differ­ent instructors who helped us out until the arrival of Paul Van Lonkhuyzen in late 1974.

                                I did the flight test for my private Pilots Licence on the 31st March, 1975 with Michael McCabe from the Department

                                of Transport. Michael encouraged me to work towards getting an instructor’s rating, as the club needed local peo­ple

                                to give flying instruction. I began my instruc­tors course with the late Ian Swailes from Dun­dalk, who was also Chief

                                Flying Instructor (C.F.l.) at Abbeyshrule. This meant flying to Dundalk for tuition. This didn’t work out too well,

                                as Dundalk Flying Club was very busy every Sunday. I finished my instructor’s course with John Judge in Fethard.

                                I did my flight instructor’s test with Michael McCabe on the 09.05.1976. The first year I did 250 hours of instruction.

                                Abbeyshrule 2

                                Then I was appointed Chief Flying Instructor at Abbeyshrule 2 on the 24.05.1979, and I have logged in excess of

                                two thousand, hours since. (1992)

                                ABBEYSHRULE 1  – Drumanure via Irish Air Letter December 1976 No.022 page 03                      (info sent to the Irish Air letter 12.1976)

                                The Irish Aviation Historical Society recently provided us with an up-date on the status of this airfield

                                At the request of the wife of the late owner of the Drumanure airfield site (Abbeyshrule 1), the department of Transport have withdrawn the licence applicable to this airfield.

                                Based aircraft were flown to a temporary strip some half-mile?? from the village of Abbeyshrule (at Castlewilder (ID1501)1.5 miles to NE). A licence is being sought for this field. At

                                least one aircraft, MS.892A Rallye G-ATIW / EI-BCH moved to Weston as a temporary measure.

 

                                ABBEYSHRULE 2

                                At the same time plans have being laid and finances arranged for yet another field near the village (Abbeyshrule 2) by Longford Aviation Ltd as developers. Longford Aviation

                                are proposing a hard surface runway of 2350ft (720m) with a displaced threshold of 250ft  to allow for an approach over the river Inny. A second, grass, runway of 1600ft (490m)

                                is also invisaged.The proposed development would be capable of handling aircraft up to Britten-Norman Trilander size. If finance permits, consideration will be given to further

                                development of the Longford Aviation strip-particularly to the installation of radio and navigation aids.

                                Castle or other feature, then that will be used as the primary name.

                                But some locations are so well known by their current title, it would be of no benefit to

                                use the actual townland in which the site is located as the primary name.

                                Abbeyshrule 2 is a case in point, named after the local village while the airfield itself is

                                actually in the townland of Cloonbrin, 1.25k  NE of the village.

                                ABBEYSHRULE AIRSTRIP: The completion and comnissioning of a new 600 metre tarmac runway

                                at AbbeyshruIe marks a further phase in the development of this airstrip. The existing

                                airstrip was opened after the closure of the old Abbeyshrule airfield following the death

                                of its owner Jim Byrne in a flying accident in September 1976. Work was completed on the

                                new grass strip in time for the 1977 Abbeyshrule display and  work started on the erection

                                of a hangar in January 1978. This is now leased to Bruton Aircraft Engineering Ltd.

                                The new runway was laid by Roadstone Ltd and expenditure on developing the airfield mounts to

                                £80,000 to date,

                                The recent air display was the occasion of an editorial visit . Outside the hangar

                                lay the remains of Navion NC285RS which crashed at Belmullet, Co. Mayo.

                                This aircraft was c/n 4-1192, registered to Ricairdo R. Stone of Boulder,Colorado. Inside the

                                hangar undergoing maintanance were Rally's EI-AWU & 'YI, Falco EI-BCJ2 and Stampes EI-BAJ

                                EI-BAU. Resident in the hangar were Cub EI-BAP ancl Auster EI-BEU.  (see 12-13.08.1978 below)

 

                                                               

                                After the death of Jim Byrne on 20.09.1976 and subsequent closure of Abbeyshrule 1, Drumanure

                                (Drimnaure ) it was decided to open a new airstrip on land at Cloonbrin, 1.5k NE of the old site.

                                It started life as a grass strip, but because of the soft landing area, it was quickly decided to

                                add a tarmac runway. Activity did take place prior to the airfield receiving its licence on

                                28.07.1977 and it was officially opened on 01.08.1977.  First Airshow held on 07.08.1977.

                                In the spring of 1994 a new hangar was built, and during June 1994 a new taxiway was added.

                                A runway extension was carried out late 2000/early 2001, bringing the total length from 575m to 799m.

 

                                About the same time a new company Ultraflight constructed hangars and facilities on the

                                northern side of the runway.

                                HOW IT ALL BEGAN. The Fly In Weekend.

                                Copied from the program of the 21st Air Show weekend 08.1992.

                                Written and researched by Pat Mullen , Club Member.

                                On Sunday, August 7th 1955, a crowd of approximately 1,500 people gathered on the bank

                                of the Inny River to watch the sports and aquatic events. Abbeyshrule Sports was one of the big

                                annual events in the Midlands during the 40's and 50's. For this particular Sunday in August the

                                posters and advertisements in the local papers read 'Abbeyshrule Sports and Air Display'.  At

                                4pm three World War 2 Tiger Moth aeroplanes (from the Irish Aero Club), flying in formation,

                                arrived overhead to give a spectacular display of loops, rolls, stall turns, etc. The highly skilled

                                pilots flying those machines on that day were Capt. P. W. 'Darby' Kennedy, David Montgomery and

                                George Donohue.  Ironically, the present 600 metre tarmac runway is laid on the same field where

                                that crowd gathered to watch birth the of aviation in Abbeyshrule. I am glad to say that boyhood

                                a dreams of flying aircraft have become reality for myself and many others. In 1956, a lot of hard

                                work went into the preparation of a new venue for the airshow, and on August 5th a crowd estimated at

                                6,000 (largely pedestrians and cyclists) paid two shillings admission to see the first parachute descent

                                by Fred Bond, -  the first lady pilot, Rosemary Kennedy, spinning her aircraft from 5,000 ft., - and the

                                first display by an Irish Air Corps Officer, Capt. Quinn, flying a Provost.

                                The display was officially opened by General Sean McKeon and the total gate receipts amounted to

                                £682.00. Two other pilots of that era come to mind - Dave 'Monkey' Morgan and Barry Egan. The 1957

                                Air Show provided thrilling aerobatics, this time a massed parachute descent by Fred Bond, Vic

                                Williams and Norman Hoffman. Model flying was intro- duced for the first time, and joy flights were

                                available at ten shillings a time in an eight- seater De Havilland Dragon. Flying eased off for a number

                                of years in the 60's, but a few enthusiasts were determined to revive it. In 1970 Abbeyshrule Aero Club

                                was formed, a Rallye trainer aircraft was purchased and flying was available to all interested. Demand

                                for flying lessons was such that queueing or booking was the order of the day. Voluntary instructors

                                were kept busy until the arrival of a full time instructor in the spring of '72. This man, John Barkel, was

                                an ex-RAF Wing Commander. Soon the P.P.L.s (Private Pilot's Licence) were being issued.

                                There were bigger things to come for Abbeyshrule.The Airshows were making the headlines, and year

                                by year the standard was raised. World class acrobatic pilots led thousands of spectators with

                                outstanding displays in Pitts Specials, Zlins, Robins, Tiger Moths, Stampes and Falcos. Speed and

                                noise were provided by such famous aeroplanes as the Hawker Hunter Fighter (Air Speed Record of

                                723 m.p.h.in 1957), The Spitfire (Battle of Britain fame), the Sea Fury (Fastest Propeller Fighter) and

                                the Fouga jets of the Irish Air Corps. Other memorable feats were low passes by Aer Lingus 747

                                Jumbo and a One Eleven jet by Ryanair. Great credit for the success of flying in Abbeyshrule must go

                                to the organisers, pilots, flying instructors, sponsors, land owners and the local people. I must include

                                especially the pioneers of aviation in Abbeyshrule. Sadly, many of them have passed away but they will

                                always be remembered by everyone associated with flying in the Midlands. Looking back over all the

                                years of flying and twenty Airshows, I hope the 21st will be most spectacular of all. Pat Mullen.

                                Abbeyshrule 2  -   1st Fly In took place on 07.08.1977

                                The Abbeyshrule Aero Club was granted it’s licence on 28.07.1977. The new airfield is at

                                Cloonbrin and is 0.75mile (1.5km) NE of Abbeyshrule village. The first aircraft to land there that

                                day were the aero clubs two Rallyes EI-ATS & AWU together with visiting Rockwell

                                Commander 112 EI-BBB and Falco EI-BBT, this machine staging a display of aerobatics.

                                The Abbeyshrule Aero Club’s annual air display was held on Sunday 7 August, though

                                the fly-in normally a two day affair was not held due to the newness of the field. The weather

                                was up to the usual standard we have come to expect of Abbeyshrule, that is to say excellent

                                and the spectators numbered close to five thousand who saw a display of aerobatics by G-AXIX

                                a Bucker Jungmeister and Falco EI-BBT, a flypast by a Cessna 414 and displays by Rallyes, Air

                                Corps Magister and a hot-air balloon.
