A first on Monarch

After all this time coming to Madeira, I can still manage to make some first shots on Monarch....

This was the first time I got a Monarch A321 with sharklets...(and considering the news...could well be the last...hope not...)
G-ZBAM already over runway 05 treshold...
Following this one (about an hour later) there was G-OOBE, still "wearing" the November Moustache, wich I didn't photographed yet but, unfortunatelly couldn't wait for it....

Air Berlin...

Talking about airlines in trouble...this year haven't published any Air Berlin pics (taken this year) so, in a week that there's also some news on the future of AB, here's a couple of shots, from a rainy day, in April....

Photo of the Week: Monarch

After all the fuss about the eventual shutting of Monarch, last weekend, they're still flying but looks like the airline situation is still not quite clear, as according to some news, they still have to revalidate the licence up to Friday and financial backup is not guaranteed....
Let's wait and see (and hope for the best...)

So, pic of the week dedicated to Monarch with a shot from last October, with A321 G-OZBZ reversing with a wet runway:
A few more Monarch shots HERE

O narigudo

Continuando nas fotos mais antigas que ainda não tinha publicado por cá, hoje deixo uma do Puma 19512 do Museu do Ar, na BA1 - Sintra, numa perspectiva que mostra bem a razão do narigudo no patch utilizado então pela Esquadra 751 :)

MD-82 Meridiana

Tirada através da janela do meu avião, não ganha prémios de qualidade mas, além de nem me lembrar da última vez em que vi/fotografei um MD-82 (com o extra da escada traseira aberta...hehe), foi igualmente a primeira vez que fotografei um aparelho da Meridiana...
