Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.
These variants are denoted by a - before the aircraft name.
Selecting 'Boeing 747,' for example, will show results featuring all Boeing 747 jetliners in our database, while selecting '- Boeing 747-200' will show all Boeing 747-200 variants in our database (Boeing 747-200, Boeing 747-212B, Boeing 747-283F, etc.)

Note: [1400px] Varig time in Fortaleza! Meh, if only it was the real Varig, and not the Gol-owned one. PR-VBP is almost ready for pushback, while PR-VBL is looking for the gate. Nice to see eyebrows on a 737 NG!
Note: [1600px] Lovely morning light for this VariGol B737-800, landing on runway 13! Great to photograph on a clear morning after rainshowers: blue skies, smooth light and a green lawn are a wonderful combination!
Note: [1600px] A wonderful morning light for the takeoff of this "Frankenstein Varig" B737-800! Although this wasn't a bad livery, it was a true disrespect to the real old Varig, in my opinion. Anyway, who cares... It's already a thing of the...
Note: [1400px] Maintenance in the first 745m of the runway was a great opportunity for different shots in Fortaleza! The Varig (already Gol-owned) B737-800 is already over the runway, but didn't reach the displaced touchdown zone yet. Funny to...

Note: A nice surprise on this day about 8,5 years ago. This was a fairly short lived livery of Varig for about 4 years. This livery was also known as "VariGol" livery to local people in Brazil because of Gol which took over Varig at the time and...
Note: Ex N1786B, PP-VPZ, N292SZ, LN-KKY, EI-ERP, UR-CPQ, currently EP-VAA with Varesh Airlines. This has always been one of my favourite airliners. Bathed in majestic golden sunlight, "Papa Zulu" was about embark on another quick hop to Rio de...
