Photo of the Week: Night Gulfstream

It's been quite a while since I last made some night-shots, also, these kind of birds don't usually stay in front of the balcony so, took the oportunity
Too bad there wasn't any other traffic at the time, it would have been interesting to get some more lights on the back...
Gulfstream G550 N770MK
Arrived earlier yesterday, from ZAD/LDZA (Zagreb Airport)

A bit earlier, with another white balance setting? Which one do you prefer?

A detail on the engine...it had been rotating with the wind, that was a bit strong but at this time it had stopped, allowing me some detail on the blades...

Germania Flug rebranding

Looks like Germania Flug (Swiss) has been rebranded as CHAir Airlines and the first of its planes (former Germania Flug A319 HB-JOH) has been painted with the new livery, which looks really nice...simple but nice (check HERE)

Germania Flug usually flies to Madeira on some times of the year, hope I can see it here soon...

For the memory, a pic from last year of HB-JOH I hadn't published yet, at its home airport, Zurich Kloten, with Swiss A330 HB-JHG on the back...

Thursdays are Condor strong day, at Madeira.
Today we got D-AICH, Condor's new plane with the retro livery...unfortunatelly, couldn't go to the airport so, a pic from last month, also from a Thursday with D-AICA, the plane that was previously carrying the retro livery and a few more of its airline buddies :)

That Transavia must be feeling lonely :)

Foto da semana: Snout67

Decorrerá durante a próxima semana, um exercício de Forças Especiais na Madeira e Porto Santo...algo de pouco comum por estes lados...
Entretanto, na passada quinta-feira, à conta disso, a Esquadra 502 fez alguns voos extraordinários para a Madeira, com os seus C-295...spotter de preferência militar em terra de civis, como eu, não podia deixar de eleger uma dessas fotos, as primeiras deste ano que publico dos C-295, como foto da semana....

16706 descolando da 05, em direcção do continente...


Bom exercício a todos...

British Airways firing up and away

British Airways A320's are one of those planes that allways perform some very nice (and powerfull) take-offs...
Yesterday, with the wind blowing expected them to make one of those...the take-off ended up not beeing as early as I expected but still in a nice place for some shots...(and way better than the next A320, from Condor that made quite late departure...)

Up and away with a bit of the old runway 24 still visible down...

with Ponta de S.Lourenço ahead...
