Photo of the Week: Sunny Approach for the TAP

Still hadn't chosen any pic of the week because none had "rang the bell"...
Today went to Santa Cruz and so, made a stop at the airport for a few shots before heading my way.
Wasn't expecting nothing really special, with no different traffic and dark weather...but ended up getting TAP's A319 CS-TTE on its final to runway 05 with a great morning light, while the backgrounds were real dark...just love that kind of general light....

arriving from Lisbon....

Apache

Back to 2005, the only time I had the oportunity to photograph an Apache helicopter....


Boeing AH-64D Apache Longbow, registration 00-5209 at Paris Air Show 2005, at Le Bourget

Tyrol Air Ambulance


From this morning, a few shots on the departure of OE-GPS, a funny registration Cessna 550 Citation of Tyrol Air Ambulance.

Arrived yesterday, from Valladolid and departed this morning to Santiago de Compostela, after receiving a passenger on ambulance.

Despite the dull weather, here's some shots (at least it wasn't raining)
refueling (on the right, another bizjet, from NetJets was also refueling and getting ready for departure)

New Photo of the Week: Finnair from 23

Don't get many Finnair's so, last monday, as I was going to Santa Cruz, took the oportunity for a stop at the airport to get the departure of this bird, back to Helsinki.

Runway 23 was in use and the sun was coming and going though the clouds...
The Transavia France departing in front of the Finnair requested runway 05....oh crap, I tought...but, the Finnair departed from the "right" runway...runway 23 and even the sun that was treatening to go behind the clouds, stayed just for the take-off...quite lucky...


With calm wind, a long trip ahead, Finnair's A321 OH-LZH made a long take-off, passing right in front of me...
With Binter ATR-72 on the apron, getting ready for the flight to Porto Santo and a rainbow on the horizont


..and some nice reflections on the fuselage, against the dark clouds on the sky...

VINCI Airports Spotters Day 2019 - Madeira

Ficam hoje alguns registos do VINCI Airports Spotters Day 2019 - Madeira, que decorreu no passado Sábado, 16 de Novembro...
Muitos outros clique ficaram por agora por tratar, alguns se calhar melhores, outros garantidamente bem piores, num dia em que a meteo variou da chuva e escuridão ao sol, em que o melhor foi mesmo o convívio com pessoal

Obrigado ANA/ANAM/VINCI Airports

Chegada ao spot, em frente ao quartel dos Bombeiros, junto ao taxiway "Charlie"


Os primeiros movimentos foram com tempo escuro...A321NEO da TAP, CS-TJK a taxiar para a 05

No quartel do bombeiros, estes tratavam das lides habituais...neste caso, com as viaturas fora para a lavagem...

 Taxi do A320 da Easyjet OE-ICW


Linha matinal na placa, ainda com piso molhado...a espreitar, um privado que tinha ficado em night-stop

Descolagem do OE-IZW, já com algum solzinho ao fundo...

Transavia France B738 F-HTVH a fazer o push-back para a 05

pena ter faltado o solzinho ali no lado da pista, para a descolagem do TAP 321NEO

Saída do Luxair...

ATR-42 da Swiftair EC-JBX

sob o olhar da spotter mais jovem do grupo.
Espero que possas seguir os teus sonhos!

Chegada do Edelweiss, já com o sol desaparecido novamente (A320 HB-IJU)

Chegada do A319 da TAP CS-TTJ, já com a visibilidade mais reduzida pelos aguaceiros...


Outra da linha de placa numa altura mais solarenga...

 Phenom 300 Austríaco, OE-GDF





Binter ATR-72 EC-KSG a fazer o "reverse power push-back" 



Linha ainda noutra altura do dia, com caudas diferentes...

Visto assim, a deriva do B738 parece enorme, relativamente ao avião...G-JZHW


Aproveitar este enquanto ainda anda por cá...A320 Star Alliance CS-TNP
Ainda não apanhei o NEO tem esta pintura mas, suponho que não faltará tempo...

The Austrian private

From last Saturday, Vinci Airports Spotters Day 2019, a couple of shots of OE-GDF, an Austrian Embraer 505 Phenom 300, operated by Speedwings and its bigger brothers (at some time...)
It's a nice looking bird :)

At the time of this pic (changed a lot during the morning, no need to say...), had the company of TAP A319 CS-TTJ, Edelweiss A320 HB-IJU and Norwegian B738 EI-FJD
