The 12th annual Bray Air Display which recently took place last weekend was one of the best shows to date. This event lasted over two days with spectacular air displays with planes from as far as Russia, USA, UK and Ireland.
Three airports kept this air display in running order they included Westen Airfield, Lucan, Baldonnell Aerodrome, Co Dublin and Dublin Air Port.
The weekend festival went down very well with all who visited not only on Bray Cost Line but right along Dublin Bay. Boats were also docked in the sea enjoying this wonderful show. We also had a flying visit from Aer Lingus jet who flew low overhead and gave us at least three fly overs.
Crowds of about 100,000 Not only enjoyed the show but it was lovely and warm and there were many a fun fairs set up along the cost of Bray. There was also plenty of hot food stands dotted in and around the strand.
The weekend show ended with a parachute display from the Black Knights who are from the Irish Defense Forces. We also had a very moving tribute to the rescue helicopter (R116) that crashed just off West Of Ireland in March of this year killing all on board.
According to the Irish Aviation Authority that the yearly event is becoming more and more important for local economies.
