Watching Planes on a Mound – Donuts in Dublin
In this fun day out
- Donuts in Dublin
- Off to BHX
- EI263 Birmingham to Dublin Airport
- Watching planes on the mound
- Back through the Irish Shopping Maze
- EI3276 Dublin to Birmingham
- What is this bus up to?
- Community is everything
With me off the aircraft, I was directed to the rearmost of three buses that would bus the passengers from the plane to the terminal – this has changed from the previous set-up, where passenger first enter the South Gates and then take a bus.
There was a wait whilst the final passenger disembarked with their luggage, but with this done, the bus drove around the T2 complex until reaching the point where we would be let into the terminal.
From there, it was a short walk to passport control. With that formality cleared, the next stop was customs. Again – no issues here
With me now in Ireland, I checked where my friends were, and headed out to the public area and the set down/pickup point.
I was kindly offered me a lift around to the mound. I therefore headed out in the real world to say hello to old and new friends.
With me aboard, it was time to head to the mound and join the rest of the avgeeks that had flown in or were visiting for the day. @essisejoise kindly welcomed us – and it was time to begin the parade of traffic that Dublin Airport gets.
And Dublin gets its fair share of “special liveries too”.
An event like this isn’t just about the planes, but the people. It’s interesting listening to different experiences, different likes and dislikes and so on.
As well as donuts.
And Tayto. Because this is Ireland.
Time on events like this just vanishes. Be it from the cloud of the morning to a glorious summer day when its fun talking to friends new and old
It isn’t a chore to come out for this sort of trip. More of a pleasure.
Next: Back to Dublin Airport.
