          Just wondering. How can they run an airshow alongside scheduled flights at Shannon?
          isnt it a bit dicey?

            Daly and Wallace playing chicken with planes on the Tarmac ? ? I might even pay money to see that.

              There's so little traffic in Shannon these days, you could put on repeat performances between flights.

                The event is set for 11am to 5:30pm. After the transatlantic departures around between 11 and 12 there isn't much traffic. The lunchtime Heathrow flight and the Munich flight in the afternoon. I'd say they'll keep the apron in front of the terminal and one of the taxiways clear for the commercial traffic. They're talking about 4km of fencing to keep the public away from where they shouldn't be.

                  Tickets for the event cost €5 and are available on Eventbrite. Children under 6 years are free and all activities on the airfield are free and ticket-holders will also be entitled to free access that weekend to a choice of either Bunratty Castle, King John’s Castle or Craggaunowen visitor attractions.

                    They're not exactly "pushing tin" in SNN! I'm sure it could be planned out.
                    Driving up the Turnpike to Newark - this is the scene at any given moment - incoming:

                    It also reminds me of being above the clouds westbound out of heathrow and somewhere over the Irish Sea as I stare dreamily out of the window at the clouds - What to my wondering eyes did appear? Not Many hundreds of yards away - An RAF fighter punched up vertical through the clouds and was gone in a shot! Likely the first obvious question on anyone's mind, "Did he know we were there !!! ???" 2) "Did we survive just out of luck of the odds?"

                      Shannon ATC is part of ShanWick which controls the Atlantic. They are actually pretty busy ...

                          That's part of the IAA and not actually based in the airport (It's actually about 4 miles down the road at Ballycasey Cross). The airport itself only handles around 40 commercial movements every day.

                            Is the Shannon facility only a training center then? I know the transmission equipment isn't there, but I though the controllers were. It's a pretty big building.

                              I know quite a few ATC lads living in Limerick and Clare that don;t work in Shannon Airport. They must be working somewhere
