Transavia out of the dark...

Passing by the wild life controlors
From last December, a shot of Transavia France B738 F-HTVG taxiing to the gate, after a runway 05 arrival from Paris-Orly.

On a dark day, the sun was on the right spot for this shot...also, looks like it's the first time I publish a pic of this registration, for the ones who care about registrations...

Zé Pedro na final


Hoje, como ia a Santa Cruz, aproveitei para fazer uns registos a um par de aviões, enquanto fazia tempo e acabei por ter sorte, já que o tempo escuro que se fazia sentir no Funchal, de manhã cedo, ainda demorou a aparecer pelos lados de Santa Cruz (sim...o Aeroporto não fica no Funchal mas sim 20Km a leste, em Santa Cruz... ;)   )

Já tinha saudades de fazer umas fotos com a bela luz da manhã e até à ultima, estava sempre a ver quando viria uma nuvem estragar o momento certo, a exemplo de outras vezes...tive sorte :)

Ficam 3 registos do TAP A321NEO CS-TJL "Zé Pedro" na final curta para a 05, à chegada de Lisboa...


beacon...que raridade para mim...


Já sobre a cabeceira da pista...

Foto da semana: Spotter :)


A foto da semana de hoje vai de dedicada à companheira de spotting do dia, enquanto se preparava para fazer este vídeo do B738 D-ABMQ da Eurowings  :)


TAp Express on 23

The first pic of the year turned out nothing really nice to remember...despite it was the first time I got a TAP Express on runway 23...
Untill a few minutes before the arrival there was this nice afternoon light and then clouds "turned the lights off"...

Embaer 190LR CS-TPW, from Lisbon...

I guess the best pics of the day was really this "spotter" that was also at the airport :)

Level at Barcelona


From last summer, the first time I got this airline...
Level, styled as LEVEL, is an airline brand under which three European airlines owned by the International Airlines Group (IAG) operate low-cost flights.

Not the greatest pic but counts for the personal record...

A321 OE-LCN getting ready to push-back, at Barcelona.
This plane was previously operated by Niki and Air Berlin (and also a few others...)

A shot taken at Madeira, with Air Berlin colors, as D-ABCN:

Unpublished Germania



Sometimes is well worth a second look on back pics...hadn't processed nor published any shots of Germania A319 D-ASTR, and this one, back from April 2018 doesn't look bad at all...

Departing from runway 23...

Photo of the Week: Luzern

Luzern, a beautifull city, lying by Lake Lucern (or  German: Vierwaldstättersee, literally "Lake of the Four Forested Settlements", French: lac des Quatre-Cantons, Italian: lago dei Quattro Cantoni)
Well...still haven't went to the airport, latelly...so, instead of another oldie for pic of the week, decided to go for a city landscape pic...after all, traveling is really one of the best things you can do and I really do miss the thrill of going to new places...
