Is private flying covered by the flight time limit's?. I thought only those flying commercial flights have to abide by these limit's. Of course common sense should prevail on all private flight time.

Re: Emergency Landing in Connemara (Letterfrack)

JFH, I wasn't having a go at you, just another occurrence of bad aviation journalism. Don't take it so personal. If I do come across the aircraft reg I'll pass it on to you. I had a look at the Letterfrack area aerial photos and I found several fields of 200m + which could (after inspection and perm...

Emergency Landing in Connemara (Letterfrack)
Sudden landing??? Anyone know what that means. I wonder was an emergency declared or was somebody just visiting friends.

Re: Beach landing in NY

What isthe position regarding landing on a beach in Ireland?I've seen it done at several places.Is permission from anybody needed? First, either walk the beach yourself or get a relible person to do it for you. Sand is notoriously unstable and it should not be taken for granted that because it was ...

Re: Historic Irish Aviation Photo Quiz

The view is from the Dragon EI-ABI (2) during it's flight to/from Kilrush today. And Roll_your_own's scilly "clue" relates to the original Dragon EI-ABI (1) which returned to UK registry as G-ACPY in Feb 1938 after it's stint with Aer Lingus from June 1936 to Feb 1938. On 03.06.1941 it was on a flig...

Beautiful scheme all right. Not NEW though. Certainly brings back memories.

Re: EI BKL

Tubular, Don't give up just yet. Renew your request every now and again as not all member's are regular post readers. Oscar Bravo, I have pics of two of the three you asked for. Missing is EI-CIK Mooney M.20C (2620). Very rarely got as far as Galway when I was doing the rounds in the 80's and 90's. ...

Re: EI BKL

Hi Tubular, I have a reasonable collction of aircraft photos from that era, but sadly not one of EI-BKL. If I had you would have been welcome to a copy free of charge. Hopefully someone else will oblige. Failing that, this website http://www.ajjcollection.co.uk/details.htm" onclick="window.open(this...

Re: Plane in Roscommon

Thank you Brendan, always nice to get a pat on the back for one's efforts. What you see on the database at present is only the tip of the iceberg of information and photographs still waiting to be added, but if you are interested in offering any info or photographs related to any site in Ireland, I ...

Re: Plane in Roscommon

One of the major problems with all Rallyes has been the main spar. It runs from wing tip to wing tip passing under the front seats. I believe it's a metal alloy construction and unless it's anti-corrosive treated the alloys can deteriorate in the damp Irish climate. If that were to happen then the w...

Re: Plane in Roscommon

Thanks Jim, When you're ready, no rush. Cloon is an odd one because there isn't a townland of that name in Roscommon, But there are well over 200 townlands in Roscommon starting with Cloon as part of their name. So probably local's shorten it to Cloon, but that must cause major confusion if there ar...

Re: Plane in Roscommon

Hi Mixturerich, Would you believe it, on Google Earth the house is on a 2010 aerial photo while the garden in front is on as 2006. So no aircraft showing. Any chance of a photo at all, or failing that a registration if one can be seen. That would answer some of the questions. Do you remember any col...
