Limetree Fly-In 2018
One of the many events that took place on the August Bank Holiday weekend was the Limetree Airfield fly-in. The event was held in memory of Tony Bradford who passed away last year. Tony was legend in Irish aviation circles and was involved in grass roots flying in Ireland for years in Abbeyshrule and Clonbullogue. He was instrumental in the founding of Limetree as an airfield as was regular visitor to the airfield until his passing last year. The fly-in was also held to coincided with the visit of 18 Spanish aircraft that were touring the country and used Limetree as their base for the weekend. There were dozens of visitors and at one stage there were over 60 aircraft parked up with parking space becoming a premium. The Dublin based Search and Rescue Helicopter also made a visit and the Irish Historic Flight also flew over with smoke on. Thanks to Ian Thompson for the photos from the day.
