Passing by...

Today I went to the airport side of the island and on the going and on the return made some quick stops and managed to get 3 interesting planes...

This Neos comes on regular basis to Porto Santo but it's very irregular on the trips to Madeira.


Despit beeing another Tui blue plane it's not a very usual airline so, it's a nice catch (but I would go to the airport just for it...)
Lining up on runway 05, before departing to Milan, Malpensa Airport.

This one was a surprise! Noticed a military convoy in front of me on their way to the airport and was convinced that it would be arriving an Air Force C-130.
Well...I went on my affairs and returned and they were still waiting at the airport's ramp door...
They must have been there waiting for about 1:30h... (g'anda seca...)
So much for schedulles...
Anyway the plane was finally arriving with callsign "Portugal 37" and it wasn't a C-130... it was a C-295!


This Tuifly was right behind the C-295 (with a big delay...it was suposed to arrive early in the morning, not at lunch...) and it was a yellow one, rare catch for me, so waited...

After turning right into final it made a huge deviation to the left with pilots strugling with the wind during a bit of a long moment to stabilize the plane....

  1. no avherald.com diz o seguinte:
    "Tuifly B738 at Cologne on Sep 10th 2009 rejected takeoff

    A TUIfly Boeing 737-800, flight X3-2828 from Cologne (Germany) to Funchal (Portugal) with 180 passengers, rejected takeoff from Cologne's main runway at low speed after a tyre burst.

    The runway had to be closed for 3.5 hours.

    A replacement Boeing 737-800 registration D-AHFI reached Funchal with a delay of 4:40 hours."
    Falta saber qual foi o registo do que ficou lá...
