This Day In Irish History tweetz:

This day 79 years ago – 21 February 1941 – the first flight took place over the ‘Donegal Corridor,’ a strip of land in the Irish state used by Royal Air Force planes during the Second World War. Though Ireland was officially neutral, the airspace was secretly allowed to be used.

Aerial dogfight!
