Aircraft and aviation enthusiasts enjoyed a very rare treat this week with the arrival of a 73-year-old Douglas DC-3 at Shannon Airport.

The twin turboprop plane flew almost 8 hours across the Atlantic from St John’s in Newfoundland, Canada and made an overnight stop at Shannon on Wednesday.

The Priority Air Charter, operating on behalf of charity organization Samaritan’s Purse, departed again early yesterday en route to Malta from where it was due to continue to Africa to carry out missionary work.
