Details and co-ords there.... Go to 2007 fly-ins
Great webpage, its a very handy service, I recomend you bookmark it.
I hope to be there...

From the website RE: Crosmolina...


There is a family fun day at Lough Conn (.5 mile from the town). The original idea was to have a static display
beside this but there was a bit of nervousness expressed by the land owner so the plan now is to do a fly over
at 2pm with a running commentary as each aircraft passes over head.
I have been in touch with the operator of the Belmullet strip with a view stopping of there and he is glad
to help in any way possible.
I am looking at following on from Crossmolina along the north coast over to Belmullet, 20-30 minute stop off
and onto Achill and Clew Bay, Westport, Castlebar and back to Crossmolina for some food and refreshments.


Anyone who wants to stay over is more than welcome.I have a mobile home on site so it's a case of
first come first serve. Camping available also.

Being festival time there will be good crack in town that night.

Co-ordinates are: N 54 08.071 - W 09 21.878

For those looking on a map the townland is Gortnahura.
The strip is 300 meters long by 9 meters wide., and is grass on a hard surface. The grass is sown about 7 weeks and is
coming along nicely. A few areas are a bit patchy but I don't think there should be any problem with low props.

Radio on the day will be 123.450

To find me the old fashioned way, fly over Crossmolina, steer 330 degrees, straight ahead is a wooded area in the shape of
a leg of lamb, I'm at the SW corner.
