Model Aircraft Exhibition at Shannon Airport, Ireland

This exhibition went on permanent display in July 2018. It is the world' largest collection of die-cast model aircraft. The gallery is located off of the Departures lounge. There are 1,500+ models of military, commercial and other aircraft, each at 1:200 scale. The models are on loan from Michael Kelly of County Limerick and reflect his 30+ years of collecting.

Some of the highlights include the Spruce Goose, the Queen of England's personal BAE 146, and every Aer Lingus plane from its beginning to the modern day.
