Dublin Bombing article June Flying in Ireland

Hey Guys, After looking at the TV with the story of the memorial to the victims of the Dublin North strand bombing in 1941 I did a bit of searching for more information. Did not find much. The article in the June mag did not give much more information that is not already out on the net. A rehash rea...

Re: Photos Aerlingus 75th

Is it true that retired staff were not invited, the people that kept it going in good times and bad?

Re: Chipmunk 169

Thanks, just curious as all photographs that Ive seen had smaller roundel but then it had three colours in it. I remember the Spitfire at Duxford claimed that its colours were correct also but some ex Air Corps guys disagreed.It is hard to get it right.

Re: Irish Seafires

Yes indeed it appears to be a minefield. I did a search and found that the person mentioned Mr Tony Kearns has posted on this forum perhaps he might see it and and be kind enough to make a contribution.

Re: Irish Seafires

Cheers stovepipe but what is Dromod? I had a look at the grey pencils website some very nice stuff there, there is a Seafire profile shown and it has its wings folded which would suggest that the wings were folded when in service. Is the green shown the correct shade? sorry for all the questions, th...

Re: Irish Seafires

Tks again Vanman. So it seems not be a straightforward green. I have passed on that reference to him, he lives in Uk so he will have no problem getting the paint in Hannants. Would that historian guy you mentioned know the exact colour or perhaps he can be contacted by my UK buddie? Pity you dont ha...

Re: Irish Seafires
