Note: [1400px] A very clean A318 of Avianca ready to taxi on a hot morning in Rio! Check out the three TAM 767 parked together at the background. Sadly, on my very short stay in Galeão in this morning, I caught only domestic birds. Nothing...
Note: [1400px] A beautiful sunset light for this tiny bus! The rare A318 of Avianca, the last ones in the world with PW6000 engines, is seen here decelerating on runway 13. Once a regular visitor to our airport, the type was sadly decommissioned...
Note: [1300px] Not an usual scene: this Fokker 100 had a nice short landing on runway 13 and vacated via taxiway Charlie, which is less than 1000m away from the RWY13 threshold. Cool to see the spoilers still up, flaps down and reverse open...

Note: [1200px] Very close to the action in Fortaleza airport. It was really cool to be on the ramp! We got the Azul A330 this night, and this Avianca A320 was a bonus. Soon after the demise of Avianca Brasil, this jet went to LATAM Brasil, where...
Note: [1600px] The little A318 of Avianca Brasil rotate out of runway 18, with a RIO 767 seen resting at the background. Two planes which vanished from Brazilian aviation, since both operators ceased flying. These A318 were a rare breed: Avianca...
