|Brittas House airfield was once again used as a support base for the Foynes Air Show, organized in support of the Foynes Flying Boat Museum. Althought the weather played a negitive role over the weekend & a number of display aircraft did not make the trip across the Irish Sea from the UK, support operations at Brittas House continued. Jim Taggart did make it in from Scotland in his Stolp Starduster as did Mark Levy & Dave Boardman in their Aerostar Yakovlev 50s. Possibly the most unusual visitor was the Speed Twin, flown by Malcolm Ducker of Speedtwin Developments Ltd.|
Among the Irish display pilots were, Andrew Fenton, David Bruton, Eddie Goggins, Harry Humphries, Paul O'Donnell, the Irish Historic Flight Foundation team flying the 3 DHC.1 Chipmunks & the Aer Lingus Charitable Foundation with the DH.84 Dragon.
