Location type: sightFoynes Flying Boat & Maritime Museum

Foynes, IrelandCountry: Ireland

The world's only flying boat museum honors a small Irish village that sent 20th-century aviation to new heights. The flying boats shuffled people and parcels across the pond, soaring to and from Foynes by using the River Shannon as a watery runway. A 19th-century hotel was converted into an airport terminal, with the highest point serving as the control tower.
