Come Fly with me – At Dublin’s FlightFest

FlightFest Launch 6Have you ever seen a passenger plane thunder down the centre of Dublin? Neither have we – until now, or more to the point, until FlightFest.

Almost a century ago, we left behind the time of mammoth train journeys and epic ferry crossings and embraced the airplane. This summer, aviation goes one step further with Dublin’s FlightFest, a one-off city centre skyline spectacle that will take place on Sunday the 15th of September 2013. FlightFest LaunchThis incredible event will involve more than 30 aircraft flying along the path of the River Liffey right through the center of Dublin.

Organisers are anticipating FlightFest to be one of the largest events of The Gathering Ireland 2013. It is expected that thousands of spectators, both Irish and from overseas, will line the banks of the River Liffey to behold this incredible event.

FlightFest is a free family event. A large section of Dublin’s quays will be pedestrianised, with many family attractions and festivities available, contributing to a carnival atmosphere that will showcase Irish aviation at its best. Large commercial Irish and International aircraft are set to fly past, including the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320, A321, A300, A330 and A340 aircraft. The Irish Air Corps and the Royal Air Force will also participate and spectators will enjoy a variety of helicopters and vintage aircraft including the World War II Spitfire and the B-17 Flying Fortress.
