Condor on final

Back in February I took the chance that there was an A330 coming in, due to the cancelled flights on the day before because of the strong winds, to try a new spot. Unfortunately, it was still very windy and it was quite far from the airport. Also, right before the A330 land, it started to rain a lot...

Boeing 787 Go-Around

Go arounds are always good things to witness, specially when it's an aircraft so quiet as the Boeing 787. These photos were taken on the 1st of August 2017, at London Heathrow Airport. The reason for the go around is unknown for me.

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.
