Transavia and Kulula

Today, Transavia's flight from Amsterdam has been performed by something a bit different, the PH-HZA, that is wearing an hybrid livery from Kulula, that is a South African airliner. That extra green does really fits on the actual Transavia colours! It would be great to see the Transavia fleet with a new livery, something like this one.

First flight and... go-around!

TAP Portugal has recently aqquired some aircrafts. One of them has made its first flight in service of the Portuguese flag company. The landing came with a toast, at a first attempt the commandant aborted the landing, performing a go-around. In a second time, successfully lands, although still slightly sideways.
