Dublin Movements, May 1977

Star items this month were the trio  of ex-French Air Force Douglas Skyraiders, making a quick refuelling stop on the way to the USA.  They made a stream takeoff from runway 06, climbing to flight level 95 (9,500 ft.) towards the FIR boundary at Greenore, thence to 60N 10W.  These were part of a batch of ten bought by businessman Jack Spanich, five of which were ferried to the USA in 1977 while the remainder were sold to other buyers while still in France. Sadly Mr Spanich was killed in the crash of one of the aircraft in 1984.

A maintenance visitor of note was the Bahamasair 1-11, making a fairly long trip for a check with Aer Lingus. Boeing 737 EI-ASB returned to Aer Lingus service after a lease to VASP (as PP-SRX), wearing a hybrid livery.

Brand new Short 330 N52DD was painted by Aer Lingus for US feeder airline Command Airways.
