Airshows are quite popular in Ireland, with events taking place over the years in places like Bray, Foynes and Dublin. Irish Air Spectacular is a new photo book that collects some of the finest photography from these airshows and other events.
What makes the book even more special is that all profits will go to the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. This will help the charity fight poverty and give practical assistance to people in need.

A short one minute video on the Irish Air Spectacular book has been put online on YouTube. It gives you a real flavour for some of the photos that are included.
All of them feature iconic Irish cityscapes and landscapes, which are instantly recognisable. Well, to anyone who has visited or lived in Ireland, of course!
Better Than My Photos!
Dublin FlightFest took place in 2013, with a bunch of aircraft visiting. Highlights of the show were large passenger aircraft flying down the Liffey River in Dublin.
After watching the Aer Lingus A330, the Etihad Airbus A340 and others, I headed home to my place as it was a cold enough day. I discovered that after going down the river, the planes were all passing by my back garden, so I got to see the rest from the comfort of home.
It looks like a gorgeous book that would make a pretty good Christmas present for anyone into aviation. I’ll probably end up buying it myself, as I think it’s well worth the €35. The book can be purchased at the Irish Air Spectacular book website here.
For those on a budget, there is also a 2021 calendar on sale for €15. Either way, with profits going to charity, there’s no reason not to buy one or the other for yourself or as a gift.
The book can only be shipped within the Republic of Ireland, so if you want one and you’re not in Ireland, you’ll have to get a friend who lives in the country to get one for you.
Will you be getting the Irish Air Spectacular book for yourself or a loved one for Christmas? Thank you for reading and if you have any comments or questions, please leave them below.
