Kilkeel




KILKEEL: Private airfield    (Aka KILKEEL INTERNATIONAL and DERRYOGUE)

Operated by:  The Nicholson family


Location:  W of Dunnaval Road, N of Greencastle Road and about 1nm SW of Kilkeel

Period of operation: 1970s to -
 

Runways: 01/19   460   grass          14/32   180   grass
Note: According to information on a web-site, regarding a Fly-In for 2017, the 01/19 runway is now 750 metres long. 
 

NOTES: If you search on the inter-web, this airfield appears to be known both as DERRYOGUE and KILKEEL.

In the mid 1970s it seems the Piper PA-18 Super Cub 95 G-ARBX and Champion 7AC G-AVDT were based here.

There is an AAIB accident report regarding the Aeroprakt A22 Foxbat G-VROD in January 2008. Was this based here or just visiting?  The same question applies to another incident involving the Luscombe 8A Silvaire G-BSTX in 2010.
