Spectacular Donegal Drone footage highlights WW2 aerial plane markers


While most of us up here in Donegal have always known of its majestic beauty, the drone is now elevating the county to a new level, literally . . .

The Aerial Drone footage was captured from a DJI Mavic Pro in March 2018.

Termon House, set on a stunning beachfront location along the Wild Atlantic Way @ Maghey in County Donegal, is a perfect escape destination. It is located in the heart of the Gaeltacht area and run by the Irish Landmark Trust.

Part of the spectacular footage shows what WW2 military aircraft flying over the Atlantic would have met, as they made their way over the North west coast by consulting their map; they were then in turn able to see where they were at or at least where they should not have been flying over.

Technically, we were a country that was neutral in WW2, but along with the markings that were known to Allied planes, there was a secret air corridor in south Donegal between Ballyshannon and Bundoran, which allowed Allied planes and flying boats to fly direct into Fermanagh, Castle Archdale and further afield.
