Dublin movements, December 1975

Not too much of great note this month, though there were a few non-standard visitors, particularly around Christmas time.  The TAROM Il-18s were most likely carrying ships’ crews. Aero 145 G-ATBH was a regular visitor and a smart example of this sleek Czechoslovak-built taildragger.

  1. I flew to Dusseldorf on EI-ASH in July 1974 and it was in Transair Canada colours then.
