Kilkenny Fly-In

Kilkenny Airport which is operated by Skydive Ireland held its annual Fly In on August 7th. Despite relatively clear skies across Ireland, strong winds prevented many intending visitors from flying in for the lunchtime barbecue. Nevertheless, Skydive launched their two Gippsland Airvans in a spirited formation with Harry Humphries in Vans RV7 EI-HUM trailing smoke. Other aircraft present, all in immaculate appearance,  were RV7s G-CECV and G-CGWG with nosewheel RV7A G-JFRV, Jodel Ambassadeur EI-EPN built 1960, Europa G-BVJN and PZL Koliber 150A, a Polish-built Rallye. Thanks to all at Kilkenny for their warm welcome and assistance.
