Frank Grealish

Frank lives in Galway, Ireland, and he first discovered aviation when he saw an Irish Air Corps flypast performed by three Fouga Magisters at the opening ceremony of a Scout Jamboree way back in 1985. He always had an interest in photography up to that point, and a few years when he attended his first air show he discovered that you could mix photography AND aviation, so the rest, as they say, is history.

Since those early years, he has been to over 40 countries around the world, visiting airports, airbases, exhibitions, military exercises, trade shows and of course air shows. He has stood on the side of mountains to photograph low flying military aircraft, I have visited aircraft carriers to capture naval aviation operations. He has flown with various air forces during training exercises and he has enjoyed the intimate surroundings of small private airfields watching light aircraft come and go.

In January 2004, courtesy of the Irish Air Corps, he performed his first-ever air to air photo shoot, capturing a SIAI-Marchetti SF-260WE Warrior training aircraft over the snow-capped Wicklow Mountains.

In the years since Frank has sat in the open doors of helicopters and parachute aeroplanes photographing everything from the small de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk trainer up to World War 2 and Cold War bombers, modern fighter jets and jetliners, and most recently during a visit to Shannon Airport, the mighty Antonov An-225, the world’s largest cargo plane.
