Antonov An-12B Ukraine Air Alliance

Today, we've got an amazing visitor around Madeira: A fifty year old Antonov! Came on a cargo flight from Lisbon to Madeira, then, departing empty to Paris. It was scheduled to arrive yesterday at around 20:30 local time, but it changed for today 6AM. Fortunately, it was delayed 3 hours and arrived around 9:15AM, about 15 minutes after it stopped raining.

What could be better for christmas than a red nose airplane? Probably some special liveries, but this year it appears that we won't see them around Madeira, just at 30000ft...

A310 White

Last weekend we got an unusual visitor around here: an A310! I had already photographed this one two years ago, but it was all white. Now it has the titles of White, a portuguese charter company. It came to bring Sporting football team to play against a local team, União da Madeira.
