On Thursday we had our first group of 2017 when we headed out to Casement Aerodrome in Baldonnel, which is a national army air base. We had an excellent guide who brought us to the hangers and the guys were very impressed to be allowed into some of the aircraft and helicopters. We also had time to browse the impressive museum which houses lots of old aircraft and memorabilia from times past.
Following the 2 hour tour we went to An Poitin Stil restaurant on the in Rathcoole for a delicious meal which was served up by some very courteous staff. Thanks to our volunteers Noreen, Gerry and Tom who came on the trip and helped make it a great day for all.
