    Default Flighfest. Dublin September 15th (Airshow)

    FlightFest, a once-in- a-lifetime, international fly past, will take place in the centre of Dublin City on Sunday, 15th September 2013.

    Modelled on the fly-past which took place during the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, a selection of large aircraft will fly over the main display area (East Link Bridge - Custom House).

    This will be a truly historic event involving more than 30 aircraft flying along the path of the River Liffey right through the centre of Dublin. FlightFest is expected to be one of the largest National events of ‘The Gathering Ireland 2013’ and is expected that thousands of people from Dublin, all over Ireland and abroad, will line the banks of the River Liffey from Dublin Port up to the Customs House.

    Great line up of planes.. B17. Spitfire, C130 Along with Irish AirCorps and a lot of civilian aircraft. Airbus A380 is all but confirmed also for the event. Seems like a great day out to Dublin. For those who know me from the NI section, you know I have a huge interest in Aircraft.

    Anyone going to check this out?

    There are a large number of Spitfires flying. This one is indeed original.

    An A380 doing a flypast over Dublin City? Coooooool.......... what altitude?

    (by the way, you can probably guarantee there'll be a strong southerly wind that day - Murphy's law)

    I've seen the B-17 Sally B at low altitude before. Well worth a trip to see.
    Saw the BBMF Avro Lancaster recently too.

    Weird camera shutter effect with the propellors here.

    Also saw the Breitling Wingwalkers, which I hadn't expected to be so cool.

    At some point the gloves must come off and we face our adversaries.

    Probably not lower than Liberty Hall.
