Calling into Shannon at the weekend it seems, probably to thank the airport for all the duty free that the troops buy on the way to Iraq.
Expect increased security at Shannon Airport this weekend as US
president George W. Bush is expected to make a stopover at the airport
over the weekend.
Bush will be returning from a NATO conference when he is due to land at Shannon.
According to the Irish Independent, the Defence Forces have been told to be on full alert at the airport for this stopover.
