I would just like to confirm the schedule for the Fermanagh Seaplane Festival 09.
All information can be found on this link for anyone wishing to attend by air or road http://www.fermanaghseaplanefestival.com/index.html
On Fri 22nd about 10 or so seaplanes will be arriving in Lisnaskea. One of these I think is a Cessna 180 from Holland.
23rd May 2009
9.30 Seaplanes will fly out to Hudson Bay on Lough Rea. ETA 10.30 local time.
14.30 Seaplanes land at the Forum in Enniskillen to the RNLI water safety day.
19.30 WW2 themed dinner. Come in fancy dress or come as you are for a 4 course meal, dancing to a live swing band and an after dinner speech from an Ex-Catalina and Sunderland pilot who was based in Fermanagh during WW2.
24th May 2009
The main event @ Share holiday village.
This event will offer:
Air experience flights in the Seaplanes or helicopters
Cruise the Lough on the Innish Cruiser trips,
Model seaplane air display
Have fun out on the Banana boat or canoes (don’t forget your swim gear and towel)
Inflatable assault course
Military living history
Or just enjoy watching the planes, whilst picnicking on the beach.
25th May 2009
In respect of the Catalina and Sunderland pilots based here in Fermanagh, a formation flight along the Donegal corridor will be flown at 11.00.
Come and see the seaplanes land at Harveys point on Lough Eske.
Unfortunatly the Catalina will not be attending.
All in all it still sounds like a great day out even if you cant make it by air drive to it and bring the family! The 600m runway has not been confirmed yet for anyone who wants to fly in a land plane.
