C-295 logístico

Por hoje ficam alguns registos da passagem pela Madeira do C-295 que efectuou o mais recente voo logístico a partir do continente.
Trata-se do 16705, que já ostentou a pintura especial dos 60 Anos da Esquadra 502 (ver AQUI)

Chegada do Porto Santo, pela 23...


 e partida para o continente, igualmente pela pista 23, passado já bem alto em frente ao terminal....
estilo ar-ar :)

Norwegian from 23

From last Saturday, while waiting for the arrival of a private Embraer 190, the take-off of Norwegian B738 LN-NIC, from runway 23, still with a nice sun....
Really like Norwegian livery but haven't taken them many pic's that made me wow...this one turned out really nice...
You gotta love runway 23 use in the afternoon...

Lauda Air

For this post, a pic back from 2004 (May, 3rd)...
A Lauda Air B734 lining up on runway 05:


Made it's first flight in 1993, left Lauda Air in 2005 (according to Airfleets was stored in 2003 but...that should be a mistake or at least it wasn't stored until 2005, once I got it flying in 2004...

Currently in ASL Airlines, after a few changes during these last years...

Danish Rudolph...

I guess it's obvious the knickname...
Around here it's also called "Batatoon"...named after a kid's show with a famous national clown... :P
Besides the engine sticker, it's really the only colorful area of the planes.....

Not worth going on purpose, managed to make a few shots on the day of Brussels Airlines Amare (Check HERE)

A320 OY-JRK arriving at the stand....

A bit more color on the plane, like this, wouldn't look too bad...

Tuifly RIU

From the same day of the Royal Navy Merlin's (Check HERE), the arrival of Tuifly's D-ATUZ, with the RIU Hotels special livery...it still wasn't the day for a nice sunny landing...

Photo of the Week: Royal Navy Merlins

Yesterday we got, for the first time, a couple of Royal Navy EH-101 Merlin's, operated by the 820 Naval Air Squadron , currently boarded on HMS Queen Elizabeth, sailing to the south Atlantic.

The couple of helicopters (ZH854 and ZH835) made 3 flight to unboard a good number of crew members...
Entering the apron, on the second flight....

taxiing to runway 05 for a return flight to HMS Queen Elizabeth. Nice to photograph a Merlin with this grey livery, as I'm used to see our own Merlin's with the green/brown camo.


allways nice to have more than one of these birds in one pic :)

one of the take-offs...





On the many many pics I've taken, this one the only one I managed to get a beacon...

Photo of the Week: Luftansa retro

According to some sources, last saturday the A321 with Lufthansa's new livery (D-AISP) was schedulled to Madeira...unfortunatelly that didn't happened (though, I'm not really a fan of the new livery....)

So, decided it was a great oportunity for sharing finally the pic's of their first flight of the current operation, carried through by A321 D-AIDV with the retro livery and received by the water canons of SLCI (fire department) of Madeira Airport.

welcome salute

entering the apron

no yellow for the new livery.......


I guess British Airways will remain as a more colorfull flag airline...
Until now had only published a pic taken by my daughter...check HERE

A330 de regresso

Amanhã, a TAP deverá efetuar 2 voos extra com o A330. em virtude das condições meteorológicas que afetaram hoje a operação no Aeroporto da Madeira (vento...)
Se não houver alterações, esses voos deverão ser efetuados pelo CS-TOE que, curiosamente foi o primeiro A330 da TAP a vir à Madeira, aquando da substituição dos A310 pelos 330 nos voos de Caracas.
Actualmente já só recebemos, por norma, voos TAP em A330 para reposição de voos cancelados por meteo...

Photo of the Week: Public Balcony

For this week some planes but with the focus on the spotters, either when they do know that they are spotting or just think that they're watching some planes.... ;)
