...posting this on behalf of the folks in Clifden;

In the build up to the 90th anniversary (in 2009) of their historic flight, Clifden Chamber of Commerce is proudly hosting a Commemorative Weekend honouring the brave endeavours of John William Alcock & Arthur Whitten Brown on their 1919 first non-stop transatlantic flight. The Weekend will also honour the subsequent re-enactment flight of Steve Fossett & Mark Rebholz in 2005.

Full details (including the airshow on the Sunday) can be found at;
