Santa Claus by parachute

This morning Santa Claus arrived to Madeira Aiport in a unique way... By parachute. This was done by the squadron 502 ''Elefantes'' of the Portuguese Air Force. After dropping Santa, the C295 made a low pass, waving to all who were on the balcony. Thanks very much, and Merry Christmas.

New spot, windy day

As I've already said in my previous message, I have tried two different spots, that is a marvelous place to do spotting on a windy day, as you are about to realize in some of the photos bellow. I have been waiting for so much time to take some photos like these ones, and finally managed to do so. Special thanks to my friend Samuel Passos, who took me there. You can visit his Youtube channel by clicking, on the right, at ''Other Airlines'', aviationchannel2010. Hope you like the photos.

New cargo plane

After so many time without spotting, due to test papers and evaluations on school, yesterday I went to try some new spots. Later on I'll post the photos here.
Finally, I got the chance to photograph the new cargo plane, that replaces the previous ATP. It has been coming here for two weeks, and I still hadn't the chance to photograph him.
