The Nordic British Airways

The last time I saw British Airways around here was when GB was sold to Easyjet...
GB was the British Airways representation at Madeira and with that sell no more those colors were seen around.

It seemed like it would stay like that for many more years but after all, the BA blue and red colors came earlier than expected and being weared by a quite unexpected plane...

With a Danish registration, operated by Sun Air of Scandinavia and bringing the Swedish soccer team  BK Hacken with an overall coat of the BA colors,  it's definitely what I call a Nordic Brithish Airways...

The Dornier 328 (Do.328)  is not a usual plane here at all. We probably get one or (in a good year) two of those around here and usually Air Ambulances from ADAC, so you can understand all the rush around this traffic... 

The Swedish team is coming to Madeira to play the first hand of an European Football (Soccer) competition with regional club C.D.Nacional

over runway 05 treshold with some nice reflections of the runway on the fuselage and engines...

The time of the day hasn't the best sunlight but you got to work with what you have and try for the best....
Will probably be departing next Friday, around lunch time.

Still on the apron was the Air Nostrum CRJ-900 that suffered a birdstrike yesterday and had to be grounded for an engine repair.
Don't really know if it's already fixed or not but seemed like the damage wasn't that bad....
