My Name is Barrister Tazon Velazquez. I am a lawyer from Spain, and while I was going through some files or documents in my office I discovered an abandoned sum of USD$10, 8 Million. In an account that belongs to my late client who died along with his entire Family during the Tsunami catastrophe which occurred in December 2004.

Address spelling incorrect - Charleston should read Charlestown

Castlebridge is located on the Northern outskirts of Wexford town and did at one time have an airstrip on a farm. The strip has reverted back to pastureland many years ago. The location indicated on the map is not an airfield but is in fact the centre of Wexford town! DW Aug 2016

Brittas Bay Fly-In 1996

First flew into Brittas Bay in 1996 - wonderful airfield! - last visit in 1999 when told it was going to cease operations in the near future due to unhelpful EU regulation etc. Does this site mean that it is active again? If so, details would be welcome.

re: Mallow "International" Airport

Reply to @prattsoplenty: Oops; I didn't fully research that last bit. The Gulfstream in KHOU was a G-III, not this G-II. The G-III did have the XA-FOU registration at one point before being sold and registered in the US as N85VT. The G-II became N559LC.

Mallow "International" Airport

Saw this photo on my Twitter feed: and looked further into this incident. Turns out the Mexican G-II (XA-FOU) used the race track for a fuel emergency landing after running out of options at Shannon due to fog. There was no damage so the insurance company built a runway (the asphalt seen running east-west on either side of the more recently built winner's circle) and the aircraft departed safely. Since the flight was a transatlantic flight, the International Airport tag fits. Sadly, the Gulfstream was destroyed in 2004 trying to land at KHOU, in the fog.

it looks cool

No longer exists.

This airport was closed in 2001 and the only thing left of it is is a 90m stretch of runway between warehouses in an industrial estate.

www dot 4u2eat dot ie/castlebar/51-castlebar-airport has some history about it.

Birr Airport (EIBR)

I visited Birr Ireland in summer of 2005. I was looking on the Internet for a flying club in Ireland for the possiblity of 'stick time' in the various countries that my wife and I visited. The Birr Aero Club was having a fly-in during our vacation so we researched the Birr area, discovering that Birr was a wonderfull base of operations for exploring central Ireland.

Since we had visited the Oshkosh AirVenture fly-in a few weeks earlier, we thought another, much smaller, fly-in was a wonderful idea. There were two small rows of campers (caravans) that looked a little bit like Oshkosh. The Aero Club was doing 'donation flights' so that I was able to view and photograph Birr from the air.

One of the attractions is the Parsons Estate. The Parsons family have been engineers and scientists for literal centuries. One of them invented the steam turbine about 100 years ago -- the heart of modern power plants and steam ships. Another Parsons built an enourmous telescope that is on display; in fact many of the family have been inovators in optics and photography.
