Ormand Flying Club Spring Fly-In
Ormand Flying Club held its Annual Spring Breakfast Fly-In at Birr Airfield today with 20+ visiting aircraft popping in for the clubs famous Irish Breakfast, the craic & to catch up with fellow flyers.
Low visibility in some areas kept many flyers from airfields across the country grounded, including Craughwell & Navan.
Follow Me-Aircraft Marshallers had a team on the ground keeping parking tight, if the WX had been better, judging from previous years, visiting aircraft through the day could easily have exceeded 50 & with the overflow field behind the hangar not available space would have been very much at a premium.
We had three trainee marshallers under instruction on the field today so a big thanks to all the pilots who cooperated with the training, specially as it may have seemed to some that there were as many marshallers as aircraft at times!
