Flight Fest (Vulcan fly past)

i heard from someone in aer lingus this morning [who is normally very much in the know about this type of thing,] who told me that on the 15th of september or the 17th of september [cant remember which but its the day of the all ireland finals in croke park] during the time between the 2 matches there is supposed to be a vulcan bomber and an airbus A380 schulded to do a fly past down the liffey.dont know if it will happen but as i say the person who told me is usually right about this...if he says it will snow then you can take it that it will snow

The Vulcan has a uk caa permit to fly so is only able to fly in the uk without a similar permit from the other countries whose airspace it will be in.

I would love for it to happen though

dont get me wrong.i agree.its 1 of those things that we wont know untill it happens,and it would be great to see it happen.just thought to mention it..[the guy who told me was able to tell me that the b-52 would do a flypast at bray a few years ago long before it became public knowledge and he is not on the bray organisation team]

Sounds good even a A380 at low level would be special. Didnt the b-52 crew at RIAT say they were to do a fly past at Bray, Sunderland and a Spanish airshow that weekend?

I think I remember reading it on another forum at the time. And we only got the 1 flypast from the b52 at Bray just like Sunderland did that weekend

Emirates A380 flypast over the All-Ireland would be their sort of marketing ploy?

Vulcan? I would greatly doubt it.

Emirates fly past would be quite strange seeing that Ethiad is one of the GAA,S official sponsors. But still very welcome.

EY are getting their first A380 sometime this year.
I thought they only sponsered the hurling?

Either airline doing an A380 flypast seems pluasible.

In fact and aircraft on a UK permit can fly in Irish airspace. Ex military aircraft will need permission from the Irish authorities though.
