The Irish Air Corps CASA is scheduled to overfly the field at 3pm on Sunday!

Other visitors are promised, so fingers crossed.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended, contributed and helped out.

We had 26 visiting aircraft from all over the country. Saturday wasn't great weather-wise, but some hardy pilots battled their way to Spanish Point.

There was some good fun on Saturday night and Sunday turned out to be a stunning, warm, clear day.

Thanks especially to HUM, the IAC and CHC for impressive displays.
