Domestic flights Premiere

Last March, 28th Transavia France made its premiere on domestic flights to Madeira.
It started the (Paris) Porto - Madeira - Porto (Paris) route.

A local newspaper stated that the first flight would be received by the Fire Dept. water canons so I decided to go to the area behind the apron...there would be plenty of days to photograph regular landings but a water canon "bath" is allways something special....

I got late and when I arrived at the area behind the apron, noticed that there wasn't going on any kind of movements from the Fire Dept. and realised that there wasn't gona be any "bath"...
Though of going for the landing but by then, the plane was already coming into final...no time for the landing...stayed there just for the record...planes slowly taxiing aren't really my favorites....
Landed on 23....

Lots of people on the balcony but at that time, TAP's A330 was preparing to depart to Caracas, which also brings a lot of people to the airport, for the last good-byes, so can't really tell if the Transavia brought many people to the airport...
Meanwhile, the Aeroclub's Piper was departing for a local flight...
(Looks like that door isn't fitting completly right....)
Old Sata's ATP was still waiting for the tail rudder....

Decided to wait for the departure of the A330 to Caracas but Transavia got ready first and departed back to Porto with an early take-off from runway 23....

And finnally, TAP departed to Caracas....



You can check a few more pics of the TAP's departure HERE, as it was already highlighted as Photo of the Week.
