Photo of the Week: B727 back to the USA

Last week, photo of the week was dedicated to this fantastic bird, with arrival/departures pics of the first day...unfortunatelly with dark and rainy weather...
After a fligh to Verona, Gordon Getty's plane returned to Madeira for a night-stop before taking its owner and guests back to United States.

Fortunately, the departure was made with sunny weather...


At Alpha 16, ready for the night-stop...
 The next day, was time for return flight to USA....

Window Wizzair


Taken during our taxi to the runway, in Lisbon, a nice catch on this colorful A321 Wizzair..HA-LTE
Not too bad, considering that it was taken trough the window...

TUI Uk B752


TUI UK B752 G-OOBE ready for push-back
Always a pleasure to see a B757...it's been a while since I last got a TUI Uk 757...looking at my files, this year still hadn't processed any TUI plane photo...don't really know if I didn't get any or got it but still are on the unprocessed folders...still, a nice catch anyway...

Alitalia at Vueling land...

Alitalia A320 EI-IKL pushing back with a Vueling A320 departing, on the back
As usual, the only spotting I make outside is on arrival or while waiting for my flight...sorry the hard-core spottters but, so much to see and do when out of this small island...planes aren't really my priority when on vacation...

Despite the huge amount of traffic, Vueling really stands out at El Prat for the quantity...
Had my eye on a LATAM A350 ready for push-back but really wanted to get this Alitalia A320...got lucky enough to get it with a Vueling just airborn on the back....

Photo of the Week: B727

Yesterday, Gordon Getty arrived at Madeira, on its classic private plane, the B727 N311AG.
With a sunny week, yesterday had had dark weather and rain at Madeira airport...oh Murphy.....

Still, it's definitely not everyday we have a B727 at Madeira (although, it's coming again today...and it's sunny)....


on short final to runway 05



lucky shot with the beacon...

The departure of the plane, to Verona (returning to Madeira today)

Nova foto da semana: Projecções


Nova foto da semana...penso que foi a primeira vez que apanhei a sombra do avião no meio de um círculo de arco-íris...mesmo assim, apenas reparei nisso no pc...na altura em que tirei a foto, foi pela luminosidade difusa de final de tarde que achei dar um toque diferente...

Foto da semana: Easyjet à saida da Madeira


Com a recente aprovação, na Assembleia da República, do novo modelo de subsídio de mobilidade, vamos aguardar pelos próximos tempos, para ver se a Easyjet sempre leva a efeito a ameaça de retirar-se do mercado de voos domésticos para a Madeira, caso tal modelo fosse aprovado.
Por agora, deixaram apenas uma declaração, onde afirmam estarem a analisar a nova legislação...


Desta forma, uma boa ocasião para ir buscar um par de registos de Março, que ainda não tinha tratado, da descolagem do A320 OE-IJR, da 23...

The Dutch Sunwing

Yesterday the TUI Nederland flight from Amsterdam was made with Sunwing's B738 C-FTDW.
Looks like that sun was on the spot for the landing but, unfortunatelly didn't manage to get it on the arrival...
For the departure the sun was already gone with that kind of crappy light that's neither sun nor dark...

starting to taxi...

First SAS...

SAS started its summers flight, from Bergen, some time ago...earlier this month got it, while pushing-back and departing back to Norway.
It was the first SAS of the month for me...
