Three Bristol fighter aeroplanes left Dublin at 5.20 p.m. yesterday and flew to Galway, landing at Oranmore aerodrome exactly one hour and ten minutes after their start, having, in addition, encircled Galway Bay and the City. They were in charge of Col. Fitzmaurice and carried a staff photographer. A detachment of men from Renmore guarded the ‘planes last night.
