"Iolar" enjoying some nice early morning sunshine. This rare 1936-built Dragon, operated by the Aer Lingus Charitable Foundation, is painted like Aer Lingus' very first aircraft, EI-ABI "Iolar", which flew their first service in July 1936. Unfortunately it was shot down by the Luftwaffe in June 1941. Aer Lingus obtained this aircraft 45 years ago for their Historic Flight, and has nurtured it ever since.
