Finally the New Livery

The new livery from EasyJet was one thing that I hadn't still photographed. Although some aircrafts had already come here with this livery,I was either at classes, either studying for the exams. Fortunately, yesterday, I got free time and went to the airport to photograph the Airbus number 250 for EasyJet (I had also missed this one twice...)

Welcome Vueling!

What's better in the morning than a walk? And when the walk is to photograph the first flight of Vueling to Madeira, even better!

Don't Stick it... Bostik it!

It's not usual to see a special livery from Transavia around here. First, they don't have a lot of special liveries on their aircrafts, but the ones they have rarely come to Madeira. For example, the sunweb on, I guess it isn't coming to Madeira for about 3 or 4 years...
But finally Transavia France has sent this freshly painted 737 with this livery.

Privilege of Having a 767

At Madeira airport it's not common to see 767's... Some years ago, it was a usual visitor around here, as for example the 767-300 that we used to have from SBA, connecting Madeira to Venezuela. The last 767 that I have seen at Madeira (I gues it was also the last one that has been here) was in 2013, performing a Condor flight (D-ABUI). Last thursday Privilege Style has brought one here, and it has departed few minutes ago (Saturday, about 10:15am). I have no clue about why it came here, but it's always nice to see some different airplanes at my hometown airport.

Ejército del Aire

Nice surprise around here today. It's not a thing that we see every day, even though the Portuguese Air Force has already used Puma's in the past, being now replaced by the Augusta Westland EH-101.

Probably the two best movements of the month, in a single shot. The 767-300 from Privilege Style that arrived today from Madrid, and the Super Puma from Las Palmas

Olympic Flame by British Airways

After having missed it at Oporto airport last year, at the golden hour, I finally got the chance to photograph this beautiful livery at Madeira.

Boeing 737-900ER

First time (I guess) that we have a version -900 of a Boeing 737 around here. As always, a nice catch, and even better with an hybrid livery.
