Pictured here are various bridges from around the country including the well
known Mizen Head arched metal bridge that's been recently restored - to
the less well known old railway bridge ( Carrickabrack Railway Viaduct )
down river from Fermoy but still famous in it's own right as it featured in 'The
Blue Max' feature film ( 1966 ) starring George Peppard.
Following a dog fight scene, two replica WW1 Fokker Dr.I triplane fighters
were flown under it up to 15 times to film separate shots by stunt pilot Derek
Piggott representing the two rival German pilots.


Personal note; Finally got an aerial photo of the railway bridge in Drogheda
as apparently my Grand Uncle was one of only a few daredevil pilots who flew
beneath this in the latter part of the 1920's while he was flying with the then
fledgling Irish Air Corps.
This feat was definitely not undertaken in an SE5a which was his usual mount
due to him crashing it years earlier somewhere near Mallow as a result of engine
failure while on a flight from Dublin to Limerick!
