Eh, on the subject of the pisstake, have a look at the indymedia ireland site under that topic, it is beng taken deadly serious by a small few, and then I stood up and announced the logics of the runway lenght and legal restrictions!

EIAB is a beautiful airfield, even on the "pisstake" of a day i visited it, it really was a great facility, and really friendly staff (sorry for the bad, and unresourceful pun).

Even with flaps, and immediate full throttle; using flight sim (oh the accuracy), nadah, Weston per runway 890m won't do it in anyway safe, nothing operates into Abbeyshrule as such, I Hope...

*Edit* - Ok, maybe it will, not very safely though, and 790m won't!

You can get a Citation 550 or some of the " smaller " one's in and out of Abbeyshrule no problem. A guy used to bring a Cessna 421 in there aswell which are famous for being ground hoggers. Depends on many things, has a lot to do with the pilot aswell. Although, I suppose if you had to in the event of an emergency then you would.

Citation 2 N46PJ has been in a few times and is due to be based. Saw it landing a couple of weeks ago in a crosswind, and nearly made the intersection for Ultraflight, so well within scope. Dunno about full up weight though.

Be. 200s have also been in and there was even a Jet Provost in the days when the runway was 575 mtrs.

Oh dear, Does it make me a bad person that I laughed my ass off when I saw this?

Took a look at this Indymedia thing
http://www.indymedia.ie/openwire?search ... e&x=16&y=6 will give you the answer to the search when you put in Abbeyshrule .

It brightened up an otherwise very dull day. Weel done hist-av for spotting that site.

Good to know I've been contributing to a fascist plot and am actually flying a predator as opposed to a Samba.

Anyway, we're fogged in today so we can't get the U2 airborne, so you're all safe to carry on your dodgy activities
