I have to give credit to my friend Rita Moran for this story. Rita posted this photo on her facebook page and I just had to ask why a plane was floating off the coast of Enniscrone Co Sligo.
Here’s what she told me: David McGowan, local businessman has a new project…Quirky Glamping…the accommodation is a 767 Plane, London Taxis…a Train… etc
This old decommissioned plane was in Shannon Airport, Due to planning / permission problems, he couldn’t transport the Boeing 767 plane via road to Enniscrone Co Sligo…so#planesailing it is!
The barge with the plane left Shannon Co Clare yesterday, came up the Atlantic Ocean along the West Coast of Ireland, into Killala Bay this evening. A large crowd have been viewing the great spectacle all evening!
Unloading the plans onto a truck starts at 6.30am Saturday morning on the beach!!
With all the craziness in the world these days, I just had to share this quirky story. Only in Ireland!!
Update May 8th: The plane landed safely on Enniscrone beach …. with a little wave action.
