RAF Typhoon Display Galway 30th June 2009

Post by georgeconna »

Folks,

I see that the Typhoon is down to display along with the Red Arrows on the 30th on June next.

Possibility of 2 Tiffies in Shannon then as then is no other display dates that weekend :shock:

Might be worth making the trip to Galway for this, I will skip the boats though.

Hi Mark,

I see that now but its in the GA section, No mention of this in events?

73 folks looked at this so far, so it looks like not everyone looks at the GA Section on a regular basis and I am one of them!!

Shame I gonna miss it.....

tks

Hi George,

The Typhoon/s and the Reds and associated Support Aircraft will arrive into EINN on Friday 29th May, The Tiffie will hopefully do a practice on the Friday at Salthill, im afraid i wont be allowed to release arrival times for EINN though.
