I know a few people from Bray and they haven't heard anything about, given that the nearest concrete runway would be Dublin Airport / Baldonnel, I'd says it's unlikely

As opposed to 3 airports in the dublin area.Also, half the aircraft at the Salthill airshow fly up from Shannon while the Air Corps ones except the Allouettes fly from the Don.

Seriously, even thought I'm a Galway man, and it was grea that my native county held the only major airshow in the country for a few years, it's fantastic that there'll now be TWO great airshows on the Irish calendar

Good Evening All,

Iam the organiser for the Bray International Airshow, we recieved permission to stage the event from Bray Town Council in early Jan and all is planned for 21st Aug 2005.
We had a slight setback with the Dart service not running W/ends in the summer months but Min D.Roche has kindly sorted this out and the line will open for the W/end of the 20th and 21st for the show.

The event is been run in conjunction with the charity Chernobyl Childrens Project and will act as a public awareness and fundraising platform.

There was a show planned for 2002 (small event Red Bull aerobatic team) but there was problems with funding etc and it was being organised by a local group of biz people.

Regards

Any information on whether the Spitfire will be flying over from Britain for the display or be based in Baldonnel?

Would be nice to see a PC-9/Spitfire formation :wink:

Hopefully the Spit wouldn't make a show of the PC9.

I thought the Red Arrows were coming to Bray as well?

15th August 2005, 15:55
Yeah, saw that on their site, earlier in the year though, when they did Abbeyshrule, there was a mention of Bray too, wonder did it fall through?

DeV
15th August 2005, 16:13
There is still talk that the Red Arrows may be available. But it depends on timing, weather, etc (at least that is the gossip).

Folks

The Red Arrows had to cancel as they could not get the height they required (so I am told), Apparantly they require 10k feet and could only get 7500 feet and for safety reasons withdrew from the show.

I will be there tomorrow in one of the ambulances (most likely) if you want to find me (there are only 7 to knock on the window of!)

Did anyone go?
What did you think of it?

I only saw about an hour of it as I was working but from what I saw it was fairly good.

The weather wasn't great.
The guy doing the PA didn't always know what was going on.
There was some long pauses with nothing happening.
The S-61N had to cut its display short due to a real incident.
There wasn't alot to do, when there wasn't a aircraft doing a display.

But a large number of people were there and seemed to enjoy it.
It was for charity.
The first time an ex-AC Spitfire was flown in Ireland at a display since they were retired.
From what I saw of it, the AC helicopter demo was excellent.
With any luck they will reform the Silver Swallows using the PC-9s, their 4 aircraft display was very good.

Well done to the organisers, with any luck it could turn into an annual event.

Army display was the shiznit. Will never forget the look in the PDF privates eyes as I shocked him with my knowledge and expert handling of the steyr and the sound of laughter as I opened up the 203 and a dummy grenade dropped out onto the ground.

You are quite the working class hero. I bet no member of the Reserves ever done that at an army weapons display stand before.

I was there, working of course in charge of one of the medical posts, so didnt get much of a chance to watch the show. I did spot Frank hovering in the crowds taking pics but didnt get a chance to run over and say hi!

The display was by 2 Bn- and the look in the Pte's eyes was more than likely pity and a modicum of restraint in that he probably wanted to shove the Steyr so far up you that you could brush your teeth and clean the muzzzle at the same time

You should be Demoted to G1... actually i wont insult G1's with that but how the f*ck were you allowed to handle a steyr and 203 so badly?

Could happen to anyone. How was I meant to know there would be a dummy round in it?

I bet that private was thinking 'phew, good think I didn't put that live round in there'. :rolleyes: Some of you people spend way to much time behind computers.

I know sweet **** all about the 203 but I'd imagine that 'opening it up' is probably part of your safety precautions. Hence the round coming out.

I was there and overall it was a good show.

However, I would have liked to see one of the PC-9's do a fast fly-past .....to show the crowds what they are capable of !

It was a display designed for the general public who've never heard of safetys and probably have to ask if it's a real gun before picking it up. Relax enjoy your day and stop trying to impress the big army man by all your infinite knowledge.
