Have you ever dreamed to fly in a B-314 flying boat? A real one? Foynes Flying Boat Museum makes it a reality. Have a seat in the cockpit or at the Flight Engineer's panel. But it's not the B-314 that makes the Museum visit a must for an Ireland or an aviation enthusiast: it's the displays in the Museum which explain the role of this vital civil Transatlantic base 1937-1945 - the golden aera of the flying boats. As a bonus Maureen O'Hara and Charles Blair (of AEA and Pan Am fame) will be found at every corner throughout the Museum, Maureen O'Hara being the founder patron of the Museum. As a bonus, a Maritime Museum is now attached, explaining the role of Foynes Harbour. A personal highlight was my visit to the original tower, overlooking the flying boat base and the village.
