Today, I was reading of a gathering of former Pan-Am staff in Limerick – possibly the final gathering of staff of the airline that ceased trading in 1991.
There was mention of visit tomorrow to the Foynes Museum, long associated with the Pan-Am Yankee Clipper.
My mind however went to Drumcliff Cemetery in Ennis. On one of my very first visits to the cemetery, I was advised of a grave for victims of a plane crash which to this day is maintained by Fire and Airport Police staff at Shannon Airport.
Pan-Am Flight 1-10, was a round the world flight that crashed on its trip from London as it approached Shannon. There was only one survivor.
I thought that that was reason enough to share the pictures.
