I'd be more worried about getting beaten up for looking at it without Paul Daly's permission.

I never claimed to be the photographer, the pic is from the database / Irish register on this website and I only posted it so that people who weren't familiar with the aircraft could see what it looked like when everyone was raving about how great it was.

Is that not the point of the database?

The Ercoupe from Moyne is the one that High Flyer saw recently. Lovely machine, now sold and gone up the country somewhere. 1947 vintage.. Hopefully we'll see it flying round for many years to come!

Been out at the EIKL at least 2 times a week for the last number of years. I have yet to see it without a windsock. The gravel is to be used for drainage, where did you want them to dump it, on the runway?

I remember looking into this out of interest before and it seems you actually can't join as a pilot, unless you have certain connections to the UK (relatives, birth etc), the details of which i am not aware of.

You can join the army though as a chopper pilot.

Its the 90th or 100th anniversary of hitchcock and brown or something. Yes, Alfred Hitchcock and Gordon Brown, first to cross the atlantic faster than sound at Kitty Hawk in the Spirit of Saint Louis, if my memory serves me correctly.

You must be livid. I reckon ebay is where they'll end up, as you say those things have limited commercial appeal. Keep a close eye on www.ebay.ie and www.ebay.co.uk especially. Post a new thread on the aviation section on boardsie as well, lots of enthusiasts go on there and you never know who could...

Wasn't there talk of landing fees being waived in lieu of a donation to charity? Did anything become of that.

Tis a good idea.
