Kilkeel Fly-In 2019

The Kilkeel (Derryogue) Fly-In took place on Saturday 20th July. Despite the blustery westerly breeze, an impressive 51 aircraft made the trip to the field with aircraft arriving from all over the country. There was an excellent BBQ and at 1500 the Search and Rescue Sikorsky S92 arrived and put on a short display. Follow Me Aircraft Marshallers were on hand to ensure the airside area was kept safe. Thanks to Ian Thompson and Gerry Barron for the photos below.
