American Airlines

When your plane parks by the side of an American Airlines B767, it's good to have a 10mm lens for a side shot :)
Still struggled with the color tint of the pic due to the bus windows from where I took the pic but, I guess it's not too bad...

Tuifly by Eurowings

Despite the flights made by Eurowings to Madeira last winter, this was one of the few times I managed to see a plane with Eurowings titles at Madeira. :)
Performing a Tuifly flight, early in the morning, was with some kind of problem (check the 2 guys on the nose gear bay)...
Was told it needed some mechanical intervention....

Photo of the Week: Air Zermatt In your face...


When you're enjoying your sights and suddenly, an Eurocopter EC 130T2 roars up the mountain, appearing from God knows where in your face before making a tight flight inversion into the valey again....
At first you're definitely too astonished to react and just enjoy the view...then you start swearing for missing such a catch... :)
Righ after that, attached my 70-300 into the camera and waited for the next one...unfortunatelly it seemed like there wouldn't be any...
When I was already inside the train, there it came again and managed to make a few shots, through the open window and on backlit but, hell!! These ones I didn't mind beeing on backlit....

leaving the top of the mountains, after inverting the flight direction...
Still managed to get a Medevac made by another of its helicopters, at Zermatt but, more on that later....

Photo of the Week: The Zurich flight


Edelweiss A320 HB-IJV on short final to runway 05
This weekend seemed the right one to publish the first shot of Edelweiss I publish, from this year.

From the same day of Transavia's Sunweb special livery (check HERE), and with a nice morning light, it's definitely one of my favorite shots of this airline, which by the way has one of my favorite liveries from those around here...

Condor Loves Sentido

Yesterday, on a quick stop, managed to catch some new stuff :)
One of the newbies (for me...) was this Condor A321 with special titles regarding the Sentido Hotels & Resorts.
Was at Santa Cruz when I noticed this one on final to runway 05, no way I could manage to get the arrival but was nice to make a record on the departure....

It's easy to notice Thursdays are Condor day at Madeira, currently (with 8 flights...)
Still, a nice record with 3 different liveries for Condor...A321 D-ATCD, with Sentido titles, A320 LY-VEF, leased to Avion Express and a different tone on the tail grey and A320 retro D-AICA

Lufthansa

From last month, on the same day of the TAP retro flight (check HERE), a shot of one of the 2 Lufthansa flights of the day.
It's been ages since I last got a Lufthansa...they kept coming on saturday lunch time (and the second fligh didn't made a lot of change on that...), a crappy time either on the light and on the mood for going at the airport....

Spotter...


Um dos pontos de spotting em Sevilha, com um B738 da Ryanair alinhando na pista 27
Para variar das fotos da semana centradas nos aviões, uma com destaque para o spotter, e de propósito um spotter de ocasião, não daqueles "todos artilhados" com máquina fotográfica, em busca da melhor foto, como eu próprio costumo ser...

Confesso que ultimamente tenho ido pouco ao aeroporto apenas para apreciar os aviões...as ultimas idas têm sido apenas para registar movimentos de interesse, normalmente em visitas rapidinhas...decididamente algo a corrigir, especialmente nas férias...

Global Inc.

More than ever, aviation is a global business :)
This is specially visible during summer season, when airlines try to get planes wherever they are to answer the high levels of demand...

From last week, a plane that really meets the "Global Inc." spirit, with a great looking mix :)
An hybrid, still with the livery of Libyan Afriqiyah Airways, with Small Planet titles, Lithuania registration, leased to a german airline (Condor)...

A320 LY-ONJ on short final to runway 05, with a shy sun, hiting the right spot, on the plane...

Easyjet

From the same day of the first visit of the first TAP A321NEO, CS-TJI (check HERE), this was the kind of light that would be, if the TAP had arrived on time...(for the benefit of TAP, this time, the delay was due to the current state of chaos at Lisbon Airport...)

Anyway...lately only been to the airport for special traffic (in this case, the 321NEO) but, still do make some shots on the other birds, after all, it's allways a joy to make some shots with a lovely afternoon light...
On final to runway 05, racing a little boat, Easyet's A320 G-EZRW

Beacons! :)

and a somehow bit of a colorfull smoke on the touchdown...
