Birr Air Display to take place after three year hiatus

Following a three year hiatus, Birr Air Display will return on Monday, August 1 with its biggest show in its ten-year history.

It’s Ireland only over land airshow and one of only a handful through out Ireland and the UK that is based at an Aerodrome meaning visitors can see aircraft take off and land and meet the pilots. Birr Air Display will showcase the best of Irish, UK and international aerobatic pilots and display teams.

As part of their 100 year celebrations the Irish Air Corps will have a special display with their silver swallows display team of PC9’s along with a stunning helicopter display and static stand showcasing their history and giving information about joining the air corps.

This year will also see the first visit of the royal Jordanian falcons to Birr displaying their exciting four ship Extra 330 aircraft. The royal Jordanian Falcons are one of the top international display teams and only perform at a select number of air shows throughout Europe every year.

Other Irish talents will include Gerry Humphrey’s in his RV7 "flying Cow", David Bruton based in Abbeyshrule displaying his Sukhoi SU31, Sligo’s Andrew Fenton in his Christean Eagle and the flying dentist Eddie Goggins in his Mudry CAP.

The popular Team Raven from Wales will be back with their brand new RV8 addition bringing their display team to six aircraft. Over the last number of years Team Raven have built a reputation for themselves as one of the top European display teams. This year’s Team Raven display will be sponsored by Hugo Loonam Motors Cloghan. Birr Airdisplay are delighted to partner with Hugo Loonam Motors for the 2022 Airdisplay.

The jaw dropping display of the Aerosuperbatic wing walkers will also return this year. The wingwalkers are a real crowd thriller as spectators can watch them prepare on the ground and as they strap themselves to the wings of their Boeing Stearman aircraft.

The sound of the Coastguard Sikorsky S92 up close is something not be missed. The Irish parachute club based in Clonbologue will be on hand to show their talent completing a formation parachute jump on the runway.

For the second time there will be a display from the iconic Mustang P51. The P51 display is a sight to behold with the famous roar of the Roll Royce merlin engine. This years P51 is known as "Contrary Mary". Tickets are available from
