Dublin movements, September 1975

Not such a detailed listing here, to avoid being too repetitive.  I'm sorry, though, that I didn't take details of the based and very common visitors, which would give a better flavour of the movements seen.  However many days provided pretty lean pickings, with just a small number of non-Irish or UK aircraft to be seen.  I see that I noted one Air Corps Vampire on an overshoot, the type being on the verge of withdrawal as the Fouga Magisters arrived (my first sighting being of 215 on the 11th).

The Seaboard DC-8 on the 27th was my first sighting of one of these on the ground and they were not common visitors to Dublin.  (They were very regular at Shannon, though.)
