As many of you know, I went to DUB today and met with Andy (A330Crazy) and Michael (T5). Sorry cannot go into a long winded story right now, way too tired and got too much of a headache! Basically the intent of my trip was to get to fly on the 737-200, for my first and probably last time. As you can imagine how pleased I was when one turned up at the gate. But not any odd one! None other than EI-CNT, looking very nice in the Vodafone scheme :D Flew home on the Pride of Scotland, 737-800 EI-DAO. Here are various wingviews, followed by some taken at DUB. Enjoy! There were quite strong cross winds at DUB, so look out for the ones landing oddly. Particularly the Flybe Q400!

I was there and did spend some time looking out at the arrivals gate. But with a streaming cold I decided that standing at the end of the runway in a fairly strong and cold wind wasn't the best thing for me. Not being a photographer I was happy in the self service cafe above departures logging. It's a shame we didn't meet, but I had a good time too. Don't see too many DC8's these days (HB-IGH is in the background of the photo of the Vodafone 732) and the highlight was a Center Avia Yak 42 which arrived mid afternoon.

Excellent shots. I also enjoyed it and flew with A330Crazy from Heathrow (Aer Lingus). We had to settle for A321s each way and even had a delay on the homeward bound flight. Just sorting my photos now and will post them and a full flight review later today.

Great pics. Tried to get a run to Dublin yesterday but nothing doing. Hopefully next time there is a plan to come to Ireland maybe it can be arranged for a weekend or a public holiday. Look forward to seing everyone else's pics now.

I reckon he might be saying: "Great pics. I love Dublin. It was great and I'm into ghosts. We were off for an investigation at Kilmahin gaol (jail). I can't even spell it. I'm the boss, too."

Im gutted I couldnt come. What are the chances of me being in college the day yous come.I meen I finished my work expierence the week beofre and now I have every thursday for the rest of the college year off. The pictures are absoultuley amazing but they only further deepen the mistery of what 732 I flew from STN on.There is now 4 at least FR732s with white front on the left engines. Theres at least 2 aircraft there Ive flown on. EI-CVB DUB-LHR EI-DAE DUB-STN-Wing shots of that flight are in my trip report.
