Portuguese Air Force C-130

Arrival of a C-130 from Lisbon, this morning. I took the chance and headed for one of my favourite spots in Madeira, since I still hadn't photos of a C-130 from there.

Azores Airlines A321neo Low Pass

You know you've just witnessed an amazing low pass, when, after the aircraft is gone, there's silence among spotters, as we check our recently taken pictures. That's exactly what happened when Azores Airlines' brand new A321neo, first with Portuguese registration, arrived at Lisbon on its delivery flight, earlier this month. Thumbs up for Azores Airlines! Well done.

Portugal Stopover

Back to September I finally got the chance to spot TAP Air Portugal's second special livery, ''Portugal Stopover'', which promotes the company's program with the same name. It allows travellers from long haul flights and passengers with their final destination being Madeira or Azores archipelagos or Algarve, with connecting flights to others destinations within Europe to spend up to 5 nights in Lisbon or Porto, before continuing their journey.
TAP Air Portugal has recently been awarded with the prize Digital Communication Awards 2017 for this amazing initiative.

United for Wildlife

During the summer I went to London for some holidays. During that time, I got the chance to visit London Heathrow Airport. Fortunately, one of the aircrafts I wanted the most was scheduled to fly in from Dubai that day: Emirate's United for Wildlife.

Ukraine vs Russia

Some months ago an A320 from Windrose went to Lisbon for some maintenance. At the time of it's takeoff, Ural's A319 was also leaving just in front of him. Interestingly, Windrose never got close to the Russian airliner during the taxi to the runway.
