The plane, which was bought by entrepreneur David McGowan for his ‘Quirky Nights Glamping Village’, is 159 foot long and weighs 50 tonnes.

It departed from Knockbeg Point on a hoverbarge at 5.30pm earlier this month bound for the Sligo camping site - but the travel wasn't a;; plain sailing.

Quirky Nights Glamping Village, posted the video to their Facebook page with a message to the kids involved: 'Massive high fives to all the children from Owenbeg NS who all worked together in school to come up with a song about the 'big yoke'.
