2014: Best of...

2015 is on! Happy New Year everyone!
For the first entry of the year, here's a compilation of last year's Highlights!
All the best for you!

The first highlight of 2014 was the TC & Starquest Expeditions flight, operated by Thomson Airways B752 G-OOBF, with TCS Expeditions titles. Check HERE

In February Jet2 G-GDFC suffered a tail strike while landing at runway 05 and had to be repaired here before proceeding to maintenance. Check HERE

Also in February, made my first and only photo of a Bingo Airways (ceased operations in June...)

SP-ADK making a White flight for Windavia
And still in February I made one of my favorite shots ever...TAP's A330 CS-TON taking off from runway 23 to Caracas. Check HERE

In March, Sata closed its base at Madeira. It keeps flying from the Azores and to the Canary island but no base anymore (nor A320 based here...) Check HERE
A320 CS-TKP and Q400 CS-TRG
Volotea was one of the new airlines we had in 2014 (and a very nice one. The B717 is a nice change from all the Airbus and Boeing 737 that usually come to Madeira). Check HERE
EI-FBJ landing on runway 05 through the rainbow...
Small ones also deserve some highlight, with this French Air Force Embraer EMB-121AA Xingu, reg.068/YI (F-TEYI)  that visited us in February... Check HERE

In April, the highlight was a couple of flights made by a couple of Air Berlin's A330. It's been quite a while since Air Berlin brought its A330's to Madeira...Check HERE

May hosted the year's highlight, no doubt, with the arrival of a USAF C-17A Globemaster III that came to perform the Medevac of a US high rank military that was in vacations... Check HERE

May was also the month of my first pic of Condor's A321 with sharklets at new livery. Check HERE

In June, we had the first flight from LOT (Operated by a Canjet B738). Check HERE

In August, one of the highlights: Belavia's B735 EW-250PA that brought a team from its homeland to play with CD Nacional for the UEFA soccer competitions. (Check HERE)

Also in August had the oportunity to make some photos at London Heathrow. Wasn't there for the spotting but even with a small lens like the 17-50 who can resist on making from shots of the amazing traffic on that airport... Check HERE

In November, Swiftair returned to the daily cargo flights on the Lisbon-Madeira-Lisbon route.
It was also the first time we had an ATR-42 on that route. (Check HERE)
EC-IVP on its first flight to Madeira
In December Finnair brought us some Christmas spirit with Santa Claus livery (Check HERE)

Too bad other airlines with Christmas liveries didn't do the same.... :P
