sounds great, punchestown is only 20min drive down the road for me. was just wondering, when display teams/aircraft display overseas eg. red arrows in salthill. will they fly directly and head for home afterwards or do they use an airport to stopover?

seeing theres quite a large green area unlike salthill,i presume the aircraft attending that are capable will go supersonic.lovely,and a bit of moisture in the air will add to the effect.

Hi guys I am new to the board and its my first post.

Dutch Roll if you think that an aircraft is going to break the sound barrier at an Air Show it does not happen I go to lots of them and its not done except at a few Military ones in the States where they are miles from anyone in fact the US Air Force had to fork out a small fortune after a BIB broke the barrier at a show and smashed all the windscreens in the cars in the carparks, you would have more of a chance doing it at Salthill than inland as you have a huge open bay in Galway.

Gentlemen,
The rules and regulations we follow as laid down by the IAA the regulator for a public air display permit makes sure that this wont happen.
