New Photo of the Week - Like a Bird of Prey

Yesterday (Sunday, 10th Jan.) we went to a baby/children's shelter at Água de Pena, near the Airport to donate some clothes and other stuff that my daughter wasn't using anymore.

Took the oportunity to photograph the afternoon arrival of TP131, the A330 coming from Lisbon, with final destination to Caracas as I hadn't photographed  this bird for a long time.

Sometimes backlight photographs have their beauties and in this case with all those shadows and reflections, the A330, coming into final really looked like a bird of prey, wings wide open and claws ready to get the prey (or in this case, the runway....lol)

Notice the tail rudder correction?...


Not an even landing...notice the right gear smoke....


A couple of Madeira Spotters guys were also "hunting" the bird, from the inside...will be interesting to compare diferent angles.... ;)

    Vim a rua para observar a passagem do a330 que passou muito baixo sobre as casas... olha passou direitinho por cima do local onde estava...

  2. Também o vi da minha varanda. Ele fez uma volta para a final bastante aberta e vi-o e ouvi-o com grande clareza!É um avião muito bonito.
    E as fotos em contra-luz estão sublimes!
