Foto da Semana: TAP Sharklets...finalmente

Depois de ter vindo cá várias vezes (a maioria delas à noite ou com chuva...), a semana passada finalmente fotografei o CS-TMW, o primeiro A320 da TAP a ter as sharklets instaladas....
O tempinho continuou a não ajudar muito, com uma valente escuridão mas, fica o registo...logo se melhora, até porque o programa de instalação das sharklets na TAP continua a bom ritmo e não tarda, já nem ligamos...
Por enquanto, ficam estas, com a primeira chegada de Lisboa, pela 23 (à noite voltou a efectuar outro voo LIS-FNC)


Com o intradorso das sharklets pintado com as cores da companhia, não ficava nada mal o extadorso também levar uma tintinha mais interessante que o velho "neoblanc"...

JetTime...C E B

Not the greatest livery (personal opinion...) but, always nice to have them around...the more, the merrier... :)

OY-JTE taxiing on Charlie, to runway 05
and, OY-JTB landing on runway 05 already under the hard light of lunch time, just for the record...

New Week Photo: Monarch by the rain

Someone said that rain provides the conditions to nice pics....yeah...if it's not dull and dark...
Most of last Thursday morning was on the dull side but, got lucky with the arrival of Monarch's A320 G-OZBY, after some rain and with a little bit of shy sun...all together with the new tarmac and fresh markings made some really nice refletions...
Photo of the Week, with some nice red reflections...

TAP...e Easyjet

De regresso à passada quinta-feira, um dia em que a meteo foi piorando cada vez mais ao longo da manhã até que, depois do almoço praticamente não aterraram aviões, devido à visibilidade e chuva...

Head to head...with Bravo November

Created some time ago a Facebook album for head to head shots...this one seems right for that... :)
Despite the amount of Thomsons we get every week, this is the first one I publish this year...

Willi...with love from Condor... :)

After a long time, Condor brought it's special livery B753 "Willi"...
When it arrived, complained about the crappy weather but actually, it turned out to be the best weather all day long...as meteo kept getting worst until almost no planes could land in the afternoon due to visibility and rain...
After lunch and until now, only the small BAe Jetstream that flies the Porto Santo - Madeira route and an Air Force helicopter EH-101 with a MEDEVAC, have landed....

 The take off was already made under rain shower...

Let's hope I can see it around here under more suitable weather... :)

OLT by Niki

While browsing some older pics, found these couple of shots from June 2014 of OLT Express / Niki hybrid landing on runway 05 at late afternoon...
Thought that I'd already shared it here but looks like I hadn't...
OE-LEL
was trying out a diferent spot, on higher ground...it's a nice one...have to try it some more...

Foto da semana: Everjets

Desde a estreia desta nova companhia, que está baseada na Madeira, nunca mais tinha fotografado o seu único aparelho, OY-RUP, um A320 alugado à DAT - Danish Air Transport, em voo...


Na passada segunda-feira, enquanto esperava pelo especial 20 Anos da Easyjet (ver AQUI), lá tive oportunidade de lhe fazer umas fotos, se calhar em jeito de despedida, já que, segundo dizem, deverá ser substituído em breve por um outro aparelho (esperemos que com uma pintura mais apelativa...)

20 Years of Easyjet, for the first time

Last monday we got Easyjet's A320 carrying the 20th Aniversary livery (G-EZOX) for the first time.
The sun was nice on runway 05 but the wind was a bit tricky and, after it's airline "brother" G-EZFM made a go-around with tail-wind (check HERE), this one landed on runway 23...

So...no landing pics...just got it coming to a stop and entering the apron, through taxiway "Charlie"...
turned out to be a livery that really doesn't look that nice (for me, at least...) but..its always a nice catch for the records...

British Airways on the Porto Santo - Madeira route :)

Like I mentioned on the post regarding the Easyjet go-around, last monday (check HERE), British Airways flight diverted to neighbour island of Porto Santo (LPPS / PXO) after it didn't manage to land at Madeira, making another try, from that island, some time after...

Going around....

Last monday the wind was a bit tricky at Madeira airport.
With variable directions and sometimes with tail wind on both runways, some of the crews had a bit of a harder job to land.
During the afternoon, British Airways had already diverted to Porto Santo.

While waiting for Easyjet's G-EZOX, with 20th Aniversary special livery, we got ready to make some shots on A319 G-EZFM that was arriving from London Gatwick...but, already on short final to runway 05, it got some strong tail wind and made a go-around right in front of us, heading for FUSUL, for some holding before another atempt, on the other runway (23)...

starting to go around, low over runway 05
off it goes, to FUSUL...

Star Alliance...

Ao longo de todos estes anos, nunca tinha feito umas fotos a um aparelho com as cores Star Alliance (em especial aos TAP A320 CS-TNP ou A330 CS-TOH) que me deixasse realmente satisfeito com o resultado final...

Ontem, foi dia de "romaria" ao aeroporto, devido à vinda, pela primeira vez, do Easyjet com a pintura dos 20 anos da companhia (G-EZOX), o que permitiu alguns registos de bónus, como este CS-TNP, que finalmente ficou mais a gosto.... :)

New photo of the Week: SAS from 23


Already said more than once that I love when runway 23 is in use...last monday was one of those days...
When planes take off on the right spot, not too early, you can get some really nice background...

Easyjet: 3 planes, 3 liveries....choose your favorite :)

Yesterday went for some spotting. 
When I heard Easyjet's G-EZUA was coming, decided to wait, still hadn't got it, despite it has been coming here from now and then...
Luckily, managed to get something I never had before...with 3 Easyjet flights in a row, got 3 diferent liveries... :) 


With runway 23 in use...G-EZUA, with the experimental livery coming to land....(glad this one didn't "stick")....

 The landing of G-EZTH, with the new livery...

 Already on another spot, at the entrance of the apron, on taxiway "Charlie", G-EZGE with the old livery, while the other two are on the stand...

Choose your favorite :)

Foto da semana: F's

Esta semana circulava de automóvel, quando dei por mim, com uma formação de 4 F-16 passando ao lado a relativa baixa altitude...apesar de ter preferência pelas "ventoinhas" da 751, 502 e 501, é impossível ficar indiferente a uma visão daquelas... :)
Fica pois um  registo de um par de F-16 por cá, em 2010, durante as Comemorações da Força Aérea Portuguesa, para foto da semana:
15133, 15126 e o C-295 16705

OO-TCT from Brussels

Lately, flights from Brussels have been coming from other Belgium airports, while BRU is closed so, remembered to publish the landing of OO-TCT, from Thomas Cook Belgium, arriving from Brussels, back in February....
End of the afternoon...1/60 shot....
