Lufthansa 747-400

Due to hurricane Leslie, back on the 13th of October 2018, Lufthansa cancelled some flights. So, on the following day, Lisbon got a 747 as a gift.

Welcome Home... And Goodbye

Today Lisbon welcomed the newest addition to TAP Air Portugal fleet, CS-TJK arriving from XFW. Saddly, we also said goodbye to the oldest A330-200, CS-TOH, which served as a prototype aircraft for Airbus Industries, flying with both the GE CF6-80 and RR Trent 700, and then, when it went to Austrian Airlines, converted to A330-223 with PW4000. While flying for Austrian, it had been painted with Star Alliance paint scheme, and with TAP it stayed always with the Star Alliance corporate livery. Today, it departed to Lleida-Alguaire Aiport, in Spain, for storage, and most likely, scrapping. CS-TOH was also the first A330 I photographed earlier in 2013.

Airbus A340 Air Belgium

Some weeks ago this gorgeous A340 arrived at Lisbon for maintenance at TAP M&E. Definitely, one of the best looking aircrafts out there. It's a shame that this company, which made its firs flight earlier this year, is already facing financial problems. Best hopes for them.

Aer Lingus Retro

I guess Aer Lingus read my last post on Sunday, because yesterday, Monday, they sent their retro to Lisbon, which I hadn't seen yet!

Early Sunrays for Boeing 767.

Boeing767s are not so common these days around Madeira as they used to be, so, it's always nice to see one around here. This one was expected to land around 5PM the previous day, but, for unknown reasons, it was delayed over 12 hours, landing at 8:10AM, just after the sunrise.
