Photo of the Week: Cherry on the Slovakian TVS

Allways nice to get a flashing beacon like this...
Also, a diferent Travel Service for me, as the flight was beeing made by Air Explore OM-GEX with its Neoblanc livery covered with Travel Service titles...not too bad...
OM-GEX is one of the 2 B738 operated by Air Explore, a Slovakian airline.

From Brussels...with wind...

Last Saturday, the wind ketp getting stronger during the afternoon and, to add that, it was quite "weird" and variable with diferent directions and intensities on the various measurement points...

The Brussels Airlines A319 captain had its hands (and feet...) full on the approach to runway 05, struggling with the wind...but went for quite a smooth landing...Well done Captain!

OO-SSI on final to runway 05 in one of its "dives"

still struggling with the wind, over runway 05...

but finally stabilized for a while, over the runway, before the final touchdown....

Photo of the Week: First Air Berlin of the year...

Saturday was back to the "couves" day :)
Couves...(check for it at the portuguese / english translator...lol) is the name of a spot I where I haven't photographed for a long time...

Allways nice to get some afternoon take-offs from that spot and with the last news on the Etihad / Tuifly lack of agreement, who knows what will be Air Berlin's future...

After a nice landing (pics on that later), the departure was also a nice one...so, first published pic of the year for Air Berlin...

Esquadra 504: Vida por Vida...

Depois de mais de um mês sem meter pés no aeroporto, não me ocorre melhor forma de regressar que umas fotos noturnas a um Falcon 50 da Força Aérea Portuguesa em missão de apoio à recolha/transporte de órgãos.

Alertado para a presença deste aparelho por cá por um familiar, decidi que ia mesmo matar o "jejum", numas nocturnas...se entretanto desse para apanhar a saída, tanto melhor...

Aquando da chegada dos últimos TAP's do dia, a tripulação chegou ao avião, tendo preparado o mesmo para a saída....

Aguardando a chegada da equipa médica, com o A319 da TAP CS-TTN a taxiar por trás...
Com a equipa médica a não dar sinal de chegar tão cedo, acabei por "retirar" sem essas fotos mas, valeu pelo registo de uma missão tão importante e que muitas vezes acaba por passar completamente despercebida...
No site da Força Aérea, a notícia, referente a esta missão, AQUI
