On the 19 January, 1940, Dublin Airport was officially opened when an Aer Lingus Lockheed 14 aircraft departed Dublin for Liverpool at 09:00, the aircraft having been positioned over from Baldonnel Aerodrome the previous evening. To mark this special occasion and historic date in the Aer Lingus calendar, at Aer Lingus VA we decided to throw a special event, paying tribute to that day in 1940…
To make things a little interesting we opted to recreate that first route, by carrying out a touch and go at Liverpool, before returning to Dublin.
