In Profile – Mike Kelly

Mike Kelly is an aviation enthusiast and curator of the Shannon Airport Aviation Gallery at Shannon Airport.

He is Alan’s guest on this week’s In Profile.

Mike previously joined us to chat about his memoir, Pulling Back the Clouds, which tells the story of how he was bitten by the aviation bug, when as a small boy his father took him to Shannon Airport, then known as Rineanna, to view the airplanes.


Mike began collecting die-cast models of the world’s airlines and has spent over a quarter of a million euro on them.
