Foto da semana: Easyjet à saida da Madeira


Com a recente aprovação, na Assembleia da República, do novo modelo de subsídio de mobilidade, vamos aguardar pelos próximos tempos, para ver se a Easyjet sempre leva a efeito a ameaça de retirar-se do mercado de voos domésticos para a Madeira, caso tal modelo fosse aprovado.
Por agora, deixaram apenas uma declaração, onde afirmam estarem a analisar a nova legislação...


Desta forma, uma boa ocasião para ir buscar um par de registos de Março, que ainda não tinha tratado, da descolagem do A320 OE-IJR, da 23...

The Dutch Sunwing

Yesterday the TUI Nederland flight from Amsterdam was made with Sunwing's B738 C-FTDW.
Looks like that sun was on the spot for the landing but, unfortunatelly didn't manage to get it on the arrival...
For the departure the sun was already gone with that kind of crappy light that's neither sun nor dark...

starting to taxi...

First SAS...

SAS started its summers flight, from Bergen, some time ago...earlier this month got it, while pushing-back and departing back to Norway.
It was the first SAS of the month for me...

Último voo do A-7 em Portugal

15504 à entrada do AM1


Segundo o Pássaro de Ferro , assinala-se hoje  o último voo do A-7P em Portugal, efetuado a 10 de Julho de 1999.

Para os interessados, o Pássaro de Ferro publicou um interessante trabalho sobre este aparelho (AQUI).

Infelizmente, nunca tive oportunidade de fotografar o A-7P em voo mas, devido ao destacamento de 5 destes aparelhos no Porto Santo aquando da primeira Guerra do Golfo, é sem dúvida o aparelho da Força Aérea, da família dos caças que mais  mexe comigo...são inesquecíveis as brutais rapadas à praia que eles faziam, com aquele barulho característico, muitas vezes a rebentar de repente nos ouvidos quando surgiam low-level, por trás de nós, sobre a praia, sem qualquer aviso :)

Tudo isto numa altura sem internet, em que o pouco contacto com aeronaves militares portuguesas era mesmo a passagem ocasional do Aviocar....

Apesar de me recordar de ver fotos destes aparelhos no Porto Santo nos jornais regionais, nunca cheguei a ver quaisquer fotos deste destacamento por essa net fora...certamente que as haverá...

Bizjets: Citation X and the CR7 little Gulfstream...

On a quick stop today, a couple of Bizjets at the far positions of the apron.
Cristiano Ronaldo's (CR7) Gulfstream G200 (he arrived yesterday for a couple of days at his home town of Funchal) and a beaultiful brazilian Cessna 750 Citation X


Despite this livery is nothing too special, these Citation X are definitely my favourite bizjets!
PP-JMJ, arrived today from Cascais and will depart tomorrow for Fortaleza

EC-KBC, Cristiano Ronaldo's Gulfstream G200 is really an ugly bizjet...
I know...it's a personal opinion...but...never managed to like this model...specialy lying next to a Citation X...

Photo of the Week: Dark Sky

Transavia PH-HZW departin from runway 23, back to Amsterdam
Back to 2011, still plenty of shots I haven't processed nor published...if many will stay that way, as they not worth showing to anyone, some, like these really catches my eye...

With the previous livery, Transavia B738 PH-HZW departs from runway 23 back to Amsterdam, with a really dark sky...still, the sun was shining right where it should....

The Belgian Eurowings


Today we had, for the first time, a belgian registration plane making a Brussels Airlines flight with Eurowings livery...must admit I haven't read much on this to understand the full lenght of these changes but I guess that's what we should expect from now on:
more and more Brussels Airlines medium-haul planes into Eurowings livery....

Despite de crappy weather, I had the time and beeing a first with a know captain on the left seat, went for a few shots...
Anyway, dark as it was, didn't bothered to wait for any other planes...

Cobham Flight Precision

Back from 2012,
a shot I hadn't published previously...
A Cobham Flight Precision Beach Craft on a night-stop with a PGA Fokker 100 taxiing on the back to runway 05...history already...
PGA's Fokker 100 were, some years ago, phased out and Cobham isn't making the calibrations around here also for some years....


Cobham Flight Precision Beachcraft 350 Super King Air G-COBM with PGA Fokker 100 CS-TPD taxiing on the back.
Check the other pics of this plane on this night HERE

Sata: old Iberworld

Was checking some info on SATA's A320 CS-TKP and noticed that it had already been registered as Iberworld's EC-INZ...
Went for quick search on my files and had already got it at least once with Iberworld colors, back in April 2008....

Starting the taxi with future fleet "brother", SATA A320 CS-TKL, departing from runway 05
