Sécurité Civile

Dash 8-Q400 are a common sight around Madeira, since most days we have one, twice, from SATA, operating from and to Ponta Delgada and Las Palmas. Today we got a different one, a French Q400

Spotting from the Control Tower

Some months ago I was invited to visit the control tower at Madeira Airport. Unfortunately, I wasn't allowed to photograph the interior of the tower, but some photos to the aircrafts were possible.

One Arrives; Another Departs

A couple of weeks ago, I was trying a new spot, with runway 23 in use. While Thomson was on final approach, the ATC authorized a Thomas Cook to line up. Of course, few seconds later, the ''expedite'' word could be heard on the radio. When Thomson was about to touchdown, Thomas Cook had just taken the weels off the ground.
