WATCH: ‘Most beautiful take-off I’ve ever seen’ – US passenger posts amazing video of Irish airport

Boston businessman Patrick Bench flew from Donegal to Dublin recently, and couldn't believe the beautiful take-off that awaited him.

Patrick ‘had the pleasure of being in Derry and Donegal for business meetings all week’, as part of the North West Development Group Partnership.

His journey home began from Donegal.

‘This was my first time taking the Donegal to Dublin flight. This was the most beautiful landscape take-off I had ever seen’, he told Independent.ie.

‘I have just arrived back home to Boston and the video was a big hit here too.'

It isn't the first time Donegal Airport has gotten international recognition. Donegal Airport has topped a list of the world's most scenic landings - out-ranking some of the most famous airports on earth.

The Carrickfinn airport tops a poll conducted by private jet booking service PrivateFly, beating off Instagram favourites like St. Maarten and busy urban hubs like London City with its short slice of north-western magic.
