Foynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum, housed in the original terminal building in Foynes, recalls that nostalgic era when Foynes became the centre of the aviation world from 1937-45.
On 9th July 1939, Pan Am’s luxury flying boat the ‘Yankee Clipper’ landed at Foynes to become the first commercial passenger flight on a direct route from USA to Europe (captured in the video above).
Take a trip though time with our historical articles below, which detail everything from the first passenger flights, through the War Years right up to the post-war era and beyond.
