UWE got it correct. It’s the Boeing 314 replica at the Foynes Flying Boat Museum.

We were there last week on our European trip, including a stop in Dublin. Foynes is a three hour drive west.

  1. Well is a fixed pitch prop and the engine leaks, so probably British!
    Bristol monoplane?

  2. If I lighten up the dark cylinder area I can count 12 cylinders.
    whoever did a 12 (or 24…) cylinder radial engine?

  3. Do i came late? In my opinion is an early boeing 247

  4. May I recommend some reading: “Night over water” by Ken Follet. The 314 is the main setting for the book, they even land in Foynes…

  5. Actually took me a bit to make the connection.
    This is the public attraction at the Flying Boat Museum in Foynes , Republic of Ireland.
    A rather simplistic ( i.e. 10cyl radial ..) partial replica. I’ve been there a couple of years ago and had tipped of our host about the place.
