Zé Pedro


Apesar da febre surgida aquando do anuncio do baptismo de um dos aviões da TAP com o nome do famoso guitarrista dos Xutos e Pontapés, a verdade é que o destaque dado ao X que acompanharia o nome do músico levaria a uma desilusão quando vimos o tamanho minúsculo daquilo, mal se notando...
Com a confiança que, em início de carreira na TAP, mais dia menos dia lá apanharia o "CS-TJL Zé Pedro" não me dei à maçada de correr para o aeroporto para fotografá-lo à primeira oportunidade...

No dia da vinda da pintura especial Europa Park, da Eurowings (essa sim, digna de romaria ao Aeroporto), lá fui fazendo uns cliques ao que passava...hoje reparei que um desses era o CS-TJL...

Air Nostrum back to Madeira


From the same day of Eurowings Europa Park special livery (check HERE), my first pics of the year of Air Nostrum, that started flying recently to Madeira again, on its summer operation.

Photo of the Week: Luftwaffe Medic1


This week we had a couple of highlights, regarding air traffic...unfortunatelly for the worst reasons...

Didn't manage to get the German Goverment A319 (15+02) that was at Madeira on April, 18th but did made some pics on the Luftwaffe Medic A310 that came yesterday to return to Germany the injured tourists on a bus accident, earlier this week...

Despite today we're having a great summer day, yesterday was quite wintery...


A310 10+27 arriving early on the morning...


 After the boarding, the return flight was made to Cologne...

You can check some more info and pics of the plane HERE (text in Portuguese)

Eurowings Europark special livery


Finally today we had one of the most expected Eurowings special livery...A320 D-ABDQ Euro Park livery...and it's really a beauty!

Entering the apron after arriving from Dusseldorf, on runway 23

nice reflections
 Unfortunatelly, couldn't wait on the terminal for the departure and only managed get the take-off from outside the airport...if it had made a left banking right after take-off, it would probably made some really nice pics...

Austrian A321 new livery



Austrian A321 OE-LBD arriving at Madeira, from Vienna
First time I got Austrian's more recent livery...doesn't really catch my eye but, the record is done...

Sunday lunch time...a crappy time for spotting either due to the family time either due to the light...but happenned to be passing by so, worth waiting 5 minutes for the catch...

Foto da Semana: Bisontes

C-130 16806 descolando da 23, em Abril de 2010

A foto da semana já vem bem tarde mas, a verdade é que sem grandes idas ao aeroporto e outras coisas em que pensar, não havia propriamente um registo que me chamasse à atenção para ser eleita foto da semana...

Entretanto, estava agora a mexer em fotos mais antigas e, numa altura em que muito se fala do eventual substituto do C-130, fica este registo já com 9 anos da descolagem do 16806 da 23, com uns interessantes efeitos de condensação nas hélices, ainda com a antiga pintura camuflada, que continua a ser a minha preferida neste aparelho.

Photo of the Week: British take-off

British Airways A320 G-GATP departing back to London Gatwick, from runway 23

This week had really no pic on my mind for the Photo of the Week but, tonight was reading about the most recent news on the votes on the British Parliament which...surprise surprise...were once more negative to all proposals on an exit deal...Anyway...remembered I had a few shots, from January of this BA take off that I still hadn't processed nor published...so...here it goes...
