Ex-Transaero B767 Joins Irish Campsite

Fri May 06, 2016 11:14 am

Ex-Transaero Boeing 767-200ER EI-CZD will finally live up to its Irish registration as it moves via barge from SNN to a Glamping campsite in Enniscrone, Co. Sligo, where it will become part of a transport-themed glamping site named Quirky Glamping. The 767 is expected to be converted into liveable accommodation.

Probably.

Here's an update! The aircraft reached the town of Enniscrone this morning (May 7th) however it must wait until the waters calm before attempting to reach land.

Its worth listening to the radio interview on their website. Its very interesting and highly entertaining as to how they plan to get it delivered.

Some of the visual renderings of the finished park show it in transaero livery so maybe it will stay like that. The airline is shut down so there shouldn't be an issue with keeping it.

I love all of this, it's hilarious.

Does anyone know when it's planned to be up and running as a campsite?

Reminds me of the UAL 721 that was landed at Meigs Field in Chicago and barged across Lake Michigan.

I recall Swissair floating a CV-990 across the lake where it is still on display.
