EIDW - Possible A380 Visit, 27th July 2017

Source is the DUB movements page on FB.

Poster is being coy about aircraft type, but immediate assumption is that this is the visit that was scheduled for March.

No mention of times at present.

Alternatively it could be the An225  :angel:

Would the 225 get stopped before the main street in swords??

Very annoying when folk do that-post if you can otherwise don`t. :-\

Re the ANT-225,was it not discussed here previously and the only suitable airfield in Ireland for the 225 was at Shannon (10495ft),Dublin has (8652ft) and the 225 needed around 9600ft+ depending on load.
Maybe I am wrong,the situation may have changed.
I would love to see the ANT-225,but I don`t think I would drive down just to see an A380.No offence meant Airbus. :)
