    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

    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!

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

    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.

    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!)

    There is still talk that the Red Arrows may be available. But it depends on timing, weather, etc (at least that is the gossip).

    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?

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

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

    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:

    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
