United for Wildlife

During the summer I went to London for some holidays. During that time, I got the chance to visit London Heathrow Airport. Fortunately, one of the aircrafts I wanted the most was scheduled to fly in from Dubai that day: Emirate's United for Wildlife.

Ukraine vs Russia

Some months ago an A320 from Windrose went to Lisbon for some maintenance. At the time of it's takeoff, Ural's A319 was also leaving just in front of him. Interestingly, Windrose never got close to the Russian airliner during the taxi to the runway.

TAP Retro Low Pass

Back to June, TAP Portugal presented us with the very first retro livery in the history of the airline. To celebrate it, a presentation flight between Lisbon to Oporto, and back to Lisbon took place, in which it did a low pass both over Lisbon Airport, and Oporto Airport.

First A320neo

Yesterday Madeira received it's very first A320neo, from Gatwick. Really nice engines, which suit him perfectly, and also, a really lovely sound, very similar to the one produced by General Electric's GE90. Unfortunately, no time to reach the other side of the airport, and I had to photograph it with backlight.
