[quote="j3cub"] That info I had about the floats must have been incorrect.
Dont give up on the floats just yet, J. You know from experience yourself how quick?? they can be changed.
You mention a strip in Laffina Hugo, that almost on a direct track from home to (knock) Fermoy - a route I often fly when going fishing in the 180. Must have a look for it, or remains of same.
Opened 05.1963 and closed 1978. Only a field now. The strip was just E and parallel to the railway line at N52.36-13.355 W07.56-19.165. The strip was NE/SW 303m. I'll e-mail you an aerial photo of the field.
Seen a lovely yellow piper cub sitting out in a field there in Ballyporeen, just the a few miles further on that track. Idyllic looking as we flew over, and seems that field is in regular use. Have photo I must send on.
I heard of a strip in the Ballyporeen area, but that was all, so a photo
would be most helpful.
