Details will be available in due course.

A new website is also being designed and will be posted here when published.

Thr Organisers & Management of the SkyFest Airshow at the Rose of Tralee International Festival 2011 would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused at the cancellation of the displays.

The right decision was made on safety grounds due to the weather, which deteriorated rapidly.

Displays that were held by Gerry Humphreys, Irish Coast Guard, An Garda Síochána & the SWIP Team have received fantastic feedback.

We had a lot more to show you including Eddie Goggins, Aer Lingus' "Iolar", Pilot Training College Flypast & an pyrotechnic display by the SWIP Team also. We hope to have better weather for 2012 but also hope you enjoyed what we could give.

In addition to the numerous list of people I thanked in this months edition, I must also thank Brendan Gurnett of Ardfert Airfield who provided me with numerous flights to Tralee for pre-planning purposes and made his airfield available when required.

Sean Horgan
