Today gave me a realisation of one of the reason why I love taking to the air and travelling to places.
It’s people and community that make the aviation hobby – or the #avgeek hobby the a lot of the fun that it is.
Today, I went to Dublin for a fly-in, doughnuts and plane watching.
Whilst that may sound boring to some of you – that wasn’t all the reason for me to go. It was to meet people, to translate Twitter handles into real people and to chat about a common interest we all have.

In these sort of events, egos are set aside as we share and enjoy our passion for aviation.
Great day at the avgeek DUB "donuts on the mound" meet up 😎✈

And sometimes, that’s missing when we’re doing the drudgy morning commute from A to B on a clapped out plane.
My thanks to @ailbhegavin, @KoifeAiernan, @Wall3gurl, @Flyingpilot79, @MegatronCox , @Essiejosie , @747pete , @Ekbalco ,, @dylan_tobin , @IrishAero and @LiigaAndrzej for one of the best days out I’ve had in years.
And of course to Ryanair, Aer Lingus, British Airways, Stobart Air, Delta, United and many more airlines for providing the images and the noise.
And reminding that both the frequent fly and #avgeek communities are more alike than I thought when it comes two passions – travelling and planes.
