The Flying Carltons

I'm not 100% sure if The Carlton Showband on the website and The Flying Carltons I know about, are the same Drogheda band on the 1940s/'50's era. I know The Carlton Dance Band were later changed to the Flying Carltons as they were the first band to fly to a gig due to a busy schedule and that made them famous in their day. My granddad, Willie Flynn is standing on the steps holding his saxophone. An uncle got me this photo but I have no details regarding date, etc. but I'd like to think it was the famous flight which led to their name change.
