Proportionally, no other Irish airport has such a high level of activity operated by the 737 Max aircraft.“At peak this aircraft type would have operated 13 weekly flights from Shannon to North America. We now estimate that the loss of these flights, which include this year’s Air Canada service, will mean a loss of over 120,000 seats at Shannon in 2019 and as a result our overall passenger numbers will be down.“We remain confident that once the 737 Max aircraft is back flying that these services will be restored, as they were extremely popular in 2018″, the statement concluded.by Tom [email protected] NewsBusinessTransportNorwegian will not resume Shannon flightsBy Staff Reporter – June 15, 2019 765 center_img Twitter Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up WhatsApp Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites Email Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge TAGSbusinessClareIrelandLimerick City and CountyNewsShannonTransport TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more

But because there is no room for error when putting a car back together piece by piece, they did the wise thing. They hit the books and listened and learned from those who knew cars.“Ben and I knew how important it is for a young man to know how to handle wrenches, sockets, screwdrivers and all the basic tools,” said Dan Smith. “Taking the Mustang apart and putting it back together would be a good learning experience for Benjamin and was something that we could do together.” Together, they pulled the engine out and stripped the car down to the bare bones.Bare bones would have held more promise than the rusty, worn out body with more holes than a sieve. The understanding among the “mechanics” a.k.a. the Smith Boys was that Benjamin had to be present and accounted for any time work was being done on the car. It had to be a hands-on, mindful project for him. His hands would handle the tools and his mind would tell him what to do with them.Three plus years later, Benjamin Smith, experienced shade tree mechanic, put his 1965 Mustang on the road.Today, Benjamin’s has car show ribbons to show for all the hard work and dedication to restoring a Mustang that he said had been “rode hard.”“Whoever had the car had tried to modify it,” he said. “There were wires running everywhere but that didn’t go anywhere. We had a lot of work to do.”Some of the work was hard. Other work was tedious.“The hardest thing was taking out the engine,” Benjamin said. “We worked and worked and couldn’t get it out. When my uncle, Dan, realized what was holding the engine in place, we felt rather stupid.”Benjamin said he learned to use a lot of different tools and even more about how cars are assembled. “Aligning the doors and the trunk pieces so that they fit together took a lot of time,” he said. “Putting in the headlights, everything had to be done just right. A lot of what we did was hard work. Sanding the paint off took a lot of time and it wasn’t easy work.”Charlie Bundy did the engine work and Phil Oakes did the paint job. The car seats were ordered but Benjamin helped install them.Even after the years of work, Benjamin doesn’t consider himself a mechanic, but he does have a good knowledge what makes at 1965 Mustang run.“I’m excited about my car,” he said. “I worked hard on it and I prefer it over any other vehicle. It’s a piece of artwork.”His Mustang has won several awards at local car shows and he enjoys participating in the shows and talking “shop” with other vintage car owners. But the greatest compliment comes when his 1965 Mustang turns heads on the road.“People will honk their horns and give me a thumbs up,” he said. “That way I know they like my Mustang.”Benjamin and his dad took a road trip along U.S. Route 66, also known as the Will Rogers Highway, one of the nation’s original highways.“All along the route people would honk,” Benjamin said. “One time we stopped for gas. While we were filling up a man wanted to look under the hood. Some guy asked if that was a gas station or a car show, and I said, ‘yes, a car show.”Young Benjamin Smith has reason to be proud. His Mustang was made from scratch. Sponsored Content When Benjamin Smith, then 13, got his “new” mustang, it wasn’t much to look out. But after three years of hard labor and love, his restored classic turns heads everywhere he goes. Benjamin said the work was hard, but it was well worth it. Email the author Published 3:00 am Saturday, June 24, 2017 Anything worth having is worth working for…and waiting for.Thirteen-year-old Benjamin Smith believes that – right down to the nuts and bolts of it.Benjamin’s dad, Dr. Ben Smith, and his uncle, Dan Smith, were all cut from the same pattern and they too believe that things that come too easy don’t hold a great deal of significance. But those things that you dream of and hope for and work for and wait for are the things that mean the most. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Benjamin had always liked classic cars and the idea of getting an old fixer-upper and fixing her up just like new appealed to him. After all, it was three years before he could drive on his own and it was also the best way to own a classic without having to rob Fort Knox to get the money to buy one.Benjamin did the research and in one classic car magazine he found just what he wanted – a 1965 Mustang. Oh man, what a great car that was!But the Mustang Pony that came to pasture at the Smith home didn’t look much like the one in the classic car magazine. It looked more like a vehicle that was rusting out in a roadside junkyard.last_img read more

first_imgTottenham forward Clint Dempsey scored twice as the United States beat Germany 4-3 in a friendly in Washington DC.Jozy Altidore opened the scoring for the hosts, who doubled their lead through Benedikt Howedes’s own goal.Heiko Westermann pulled a goal back, but Dempsey’s brace made it 4-1.Max Kruse and Julian Draxler ensured a tense finish, but the US held on to give their coach Jurgen Klinsmann victory over his homeland.It was a morale-boosting victory for the home side in the US Soccer Federation’s centennial celebration match, just four days after they struggled in a 4-2 loss to Belgium.However, Germany were missing players from Bayern Munich, who completed the treble on Saturday with victory in the German Cup final, and Borussia Dortmund. Only Dortmund’s Sven Bender played in the all-German Champions League final and against the United States. Dempsey’s brace means he moves to 35 international goals in 96 appearances, taking him past Eric Wynalda into second on the all-time US scoring list – 14 shy of Landon Donovan’s record.“Having a player like Clint Dempsey on your team is just a privilege,” said Klinsmann. “This is one of the best players in US history. He has the hunger and the drive. He sends a message to his own players and also to the opponents.”last_img read more
