    No chance of anything going supersonic in punchestown. Sure its surrounded by houses aswell :( Sure when your in naas the noise of the PC9's flying over is too loud for the residents, especially my aunt- she cant stand it every day :D screw her the noise of em is cool :D :D

    :D It'd be the business if they did do a supersonic flyby though. :D


    :D :shock: :D :shock: :D :shock: :D :shock:

    I see you have a RAF Merlin Heli aswell as the Hawk for the show, cant wait for the show!! Punchestown will be a great venue for the display.
    I also heard the runway on the infield will be also used, i have flown in and out of Punchestown lots of times in the past.
    Hope this will be made a annual event as a huge gap still remains from the old disorganised air spec at the Don from all those years ago. :roll:

    Yes its in Portrush in Sept but its not going outside the UK so it wont be seen anywhere in the South, to be honest the line up at Mach 1 is not very exciting and its certainly not worth the asking price, Farnborough the biggest in the world is only 22 pound to get into. Going to Farnborough myself and also to Salthill which costs nothing.

    ya i booked my flights and accomodation for farnborough today! should be great!! lots of fast jets should be there,typhoon is for definite.

    its funny how farnborough is still cheaper to get in than mach1 even with the sterling,train from cork/limerick to newbridge or kildare is also far more expensive than a ryanair return to gatwick.
