Bray Airshow 2013

Bray Airshow 2013

Postby ciaranchef on Sat 31 Aug 2013, 6:08 am

The seaside town of Bray south of Dublin holds an annual seafront Airshow as part of its Summer Festival that attracts some good acts considering its size. This year a very low pass over the beach by the retro painted Aer Lingus A320 started the day off with other highlights being the Strikemaster from NWMAS and the wonderful Bellanca Cruisemaster, the only example flying outside the USA and Canada. Other great acts were the Blades, The Trig Aerobatic Team, AV8tors and the performance by the Aer Corp’s Eurocopter EC 135 and CN-235 (the other one was at RIAT that day.).Heres a few from the day, Ciaran
