    I have some footage from a DVD showing those Concorde training sessions from Shannon, including a nice shot of one climbing out over nearby Bunratty Castle and Durty Nellies pub where we stopped for a pint yesterday. Here's the same angle the video was shot from, just imagine Conorde tearing across the top of frame.
    That's were I had my first pint(s) of Guinness
    My aunt treated me!
    - And my dad was trown out of Dirty Nellies in the 70's after dancing on tables.
    Well, my father won't talk about it. It was the time before he knew my (Irish) mum! Don't say, that Germans are not funny!!!

    Anyway, today is his birthday!
    So I'm offline for today!

                    I understand the Shannon based 732's were replaced by 738's on October 11th? Can anyone confirm this?
