The Irish Historic Flight Foundation (IHFF) has moved into its new home at Ballyboy Airfield, Athboy, Co. Meath, with the Foundation's four aircraft - three DHC-1 Chipmunks and a Boeing Stearman - taking up residence in a purpose-built hangar at the airfield.
At the announcement in August 2020, Michael Hickey, Chairman of the IHFF, said “we are delighted to be moving into this brand new, purpose-built hangar at Ballyboy. This new facility provides us with a centre of operations for our aircraft and gives us the opportunity to build a maintenance base to support these and other aircraft as we look to grow our fleet over the coming years. We would especially like to thank Bernard Cullen and his family for their ongoing support of the IHFF.”
Bernard Cullen, the owner of Ballyboy Airfield said “we are delighted to have the IHFF move into their new hangar here in Ballyboy. In addition to this new hangar, we have recently completed the installation of a new tarmac runway and we look forward to welcoming other vintage aircraft operators from the UK and beyond in the near future.”
