As we plot a video diary of a flight over Greystones, we thought it might be wise to pull all those aerial shots of the town taken over the decades into one easy, digestible post.
Just to prove that, even for the birds way up in the sky, aren’t we only feckin’ gorgeous.
We have more in the archives, which we’ll be adding over the coming weeks/months/years. We’re doing a major clean-up of the thousands of shots added over the last four years…
Interesting to see that the streets haven’t changed all that much, with just the harbour putting on a little muscle without actually losing its overall shape.
We were hoping to have video of a town flyover with those Newcastle Airfield guys, but the miserable fecks aren’t returning out emails or calls. We do have some wonderful 1950s shots from the Irish Air Corps though, the mighty David Hoctor’s work here, and an interactive aerial tour here, plus a wonderful April 2016aerial trek of The Cliff Walk.
So, strap yourself in, and let’s go up, up and away, in our beautiful GG balloon…
