YESTERDAY’S BRAY AIR display had a bit of everything, from a romantic marriage proposal to feats of derring-do in the skies.

An estimated 90,000 people turned out to have a gawk at the best the Irish Air Corps and Swiss Air Force (the Patrouille Suisse) could come up with, while one lucky lady was subject to an aerial proposal prior to the event kicking off.

Conditions were perfect for the display as onlookers gathered on the beach and seaside promenade to take in the display of aerial prowess.

Flying in formation with the Swiss group for part of their display was Aer Lingus pilot Capt. Paul Scully in a commercial jet.

The air display is an annual fixture as part of Summerfest in the east coast town, just south of Dublin.
