Boeing 747-8BBJ Qatar Amiri Flight

Without any doubts, this is one of the best airplanes I have ever seen and photographed.
This 747-8BBJ visited Lisbon last week, staying for a night stop. 
Only 8 aircrafts of this model were produced, two of those are already stored, this one is another big achievement for me as a spotter. With prices ascending the 300 million USD, for the VIP version, the -8 series of the 747 is the longest airliner, and the second larger flying, overtaken by the A380.

Farewell to Fokker 100

Today it's time to say goodbye not just one, but to two icons in the portuguese aviation. Today the last portuguese Fokker 100 makes the last comercial flight for TAP Portugal, and it is also the last time we see PGA colours, since this is the last aircraft still wearing Portugália livery. The replacements for the Portugália fleet, ATR72 and Embraer E190, have been painted with TAP Express colours.

Here's a compilation of some photos I have taken to Portugália's F100, in the past 4 years.

No-Shave November

Since we are already in November, here's one that I photographed last month at Madeira Airport. This A321 from Monarch is the only one still wearing this stylish moustache from last year.

Azores Airlines

Special movements at Madeira have been very rare on the last months. Couple of weeks ago we had this A320, from SATA, now named Azores Airlines, already with its new paint scheme.
