The Pot of Gold!

I left house with the main goal of photographing the new Hapag Lloyd livery, from TUIfly, but, had just arrived at the airport when the marvelous sunny day disapeared and began to drizzle, which is pretty common to happen in Madeira. At first I get a bit annoyed, but then, when a light rainbow appeared, my goal changed: I wanted to catch a photo of an aircraft with a rainbow near it, I could not capture the entire rainbow because i had left my smaller objective at home, but still managed to get something interesting.

Lisbon Airport

Two weeks ago I went travelling to Portugal, and I took the chance and went to the airport. In the first day it was cloudy, but i caught very nica planes, such as A318, 773, ERJ195, B1900, US Airways and more. I went a second time to the airport with the objective of photographing the A343 of TAP, but, unfortunately, due to a B1900 on the runway 03 the A343 ended going to runway 35, wich is a rare event, an aircraft like that landing on runway 35... On 35 also landed a Kamov.

White Airways

It has gone many years since I have last seen an aircraft with the colors of White. I used to see the A310 that regularly come here, but they have been scrapped or no longer have that livery. But now that livery has come back to Madeira, this time in an A320-

Airberlin arrows

Few days ago this flight was scheduled to be done with D-ABDU, Airberlin an Ethiad livery, move forward, well, they did the oposite, they have move back and unscheduled it! :/ Probably D-ABDU will come here when it has the normal livery!  In stead of Mr. D-ABDU we had D-ABDB (seen in the photos)
