Display Times For Salthill Friday29th/Saturday30th

Post by Warthog »

Hi all,


Just a heads up about this weekend:

Friday 29th May:

18:00PM

Irish Coast Guard Sikorsky S61N SAR Demo Off Salthill Promenade With The RNLI.

Saturday 30th May:

11:30AM

RAF Red Arrows Off Salthill Promenade.


I advise all coming to Salthill for the Red's to be in Salthill for at least 11AM if not earlier in order for you to get your spot to view the Red's Display which is just under 30Minutes long, remember "Show Center" is the Car Park at Salthill.

The Red's have to display at 11:30AM due to the fact they need to be in Paris at 17:00 on Saturday.

It is hoped that two Irish Naval Ships ( LE Aisling and LE Roisin ) will be in the Bay for the weekend.

Enjoy Enjoy,

Dave.

The Red's have to display at 11:30AM


Is this a confirmed time of 11:30am if the festival planner is still showing a display at noon? I know people outside of the flying world planning to be there for noon as advertised all along? just curious.

Red Arrows - 9 Hawks @ €7 each for transitting the zone, = €63. Of course being near the boundary, they may transit a few times, so could increase!!! :D

Anyone with a scanner should tune between 242MHz and 255MHz for the air-to-air comms during the display. I listened in on it a few times and it makes it much more exciting.
There is no set frequency, as they change it from time to time.
Here's why (a quote from their website)...
There have been instances in the past where individuals have transmitted on our frequencies during air displays, offering advice. :shock:
This website has a great list of Airband Frequencies, including Shannon and Galway, which should also be busy this weekend.

A buddy just told me he heard on Galway Bay FM that the Red Arrows will be doing a fly-past of the docks in Galway at 4pm today before landing at Shannon.

Tune in to 243.45 - although it's common now for Red 1 to be heard via the PA system at most larger displays.Enjoy the show :wink: :wink:
