Royal Danish Air Force C-130J departure

After the night-stop, time for the Royal Danish Air Force C-130J B-536 to depart for the final leg of its trip...
With a cloudy and dark day, decided to give it a try on a spot that usually, at that time would be strongly backlit but, on the other hand would probably provide more interesting action shots...was counting on the clouds keeping its dark look...

All in all...I guess it could be worse...(it could also be a lot better, off course...)

Getting the plane ready, after the night...

Engine on!

all four running and almost ready to go....love the prop blur of those propellers...

A few shots of the take-off, where the backlit would do more damage....
Have a nice trip and a good mission!
Stay safe!

Royal Danish Air Force / UN C-130

Today we had the most interest traffic of the year (for me...): A Royal Danish Air Force C-130J...and the "cherry on top of the cake"...with UN Titles...

It was the first time I got a Danish Air Force plane.
A few shots of the arrival of C-130J30 B-536. On a dark day, we were lucky enough to get some sun on the touchdown... :) :)

Tui Belgium

From the same day of Great Dane Airlines premiere (08.Feb.2020, check HERE) some shots of the arrival of TUI Belgium OO-TNB, arriving 5 hours late, from Tenerife South, on a direct entry to runway 23, when the visibility over Ponta de S.Lourenço was quite bad...
It came in quite fast coming to a stop after taxiway Charlie, going to the end of the runway for the backtrack...
reverses and spoillers on after landing on runway 23

despite the black clouds and bad visibility to the east of the island, at the airport there was a nice late afternoon sunlight

still closing the reverses, after a fast landing on runway 23
