Shannon Airport delivered an air display extravaganza on Saturday to mark a key milestone in Irish aviation history, the 70th anniversary of the first commercial transatlantic flight at the Clare airport.
In addition to the sky manoeuvres on the day, there was plenty of on-the-ground action, including a static aircraft and tank display, children’s entertainment area, live music and a catering zone.
The second air show in as many weeks in the region will take place next weekend when the Foynes Air Show takes place on Sunday, 26 July.
Authentic World War Two airplanes, Aer Lingus’ first airplane and one the largest search and rescue (SAR) training exercises ever undertaken in Ireland are among the highlights of the second annual Show.
Hosted by Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum, the Air Show will also feature aircraft displays from across Europe, along with some of the world’s top aerobatic pilots.
