Note: Community Appreciation Day was usually a great way to spend the day among some airplanes! The USAF always brought some great surprises and I still remember the times when we used to see B52's and B1's! Although the world economical crises...
Note: It's quite a privilege to have a Boeing 747 weekly landing in your hometown airport! This B742 was originally delivered to Varig, then it went to Air Hong Kong passing by Cathay Pacific and it's now with SA! Quite a busy life I would...
Note: What an amazing light on a beautiful afternoon. "Red Devils" squadron will be deactivated and these ones are going back to the USA! This was the last of 6 A-10's that landed that day at Lajes, to join another 6 that landed the day before.
Note: This beautiful Cessna 172 was once in Aerocondor's fleet but was recently sold and overhauled. It now belongs to a private owner and is one of the most astonishing 172's in Portugal, in my own opinion! Seen here flaring for a full stop on...
Note: Nice Lancair 320 landing on runway 35! It wasn't the first time that this airplane was at Cascais since it was here in 2010. But this time it was for a quick stop since it departed in the afternoon, just a couple of hours later.
Note: This was the cherry on the top of the cake. The UEFA's final brought a lot of highlights to this little aerodrome but this beauty only showed up when all the rest was already going away. The crew spent less than an hour on the ground,...
Note: Medical Emergency at Lajes. Flight "CFG157" from Cancun/Mexico to Frankfurt diverted to the Azores due to a passenger's medical problem! Two hours later and after refueling it departed inbound the final destination.
Note: Another astonishing surprise at Lajes Vegas airport!! This "Lindo31" was scheduled for a night arrival but for some reason came in the afternoon with some very good weather conditions. It was nice to see a visual approach done by the crew...
Note: One of two AV-8B's that spent the night at Lajes on their way back to the USA! They came from Greece as "Trend71/72" with a KC-10 as support. This one is seen entering runway 15 for departure with some great weather conditions.
Note: A nice Skyhawk departing from runway 35 inbound Seville! This was one of the 11 participants on the Aéro France Rally that started in France, passed through Spain, Portugal and then they returned back home on a 10 day trip.
Note: Amazing departure done by this Global Express! The rate of climb of this machine is insane... I've seen this one quite some times here in the mainland, but never got a picture that I truly enjoyed, until now. Seen here departing from...
Note: I was quite happy to see this airplane coming back to Cascais. I believe it was doing some kind of air work over Portugal since I saw it overflying Tires and it eventually returned for more fuel.
Note: This particular aircraft as such an impressive background. It was part of an mid-air collision with an Shenyang J-8 fighter on what is now considered as the Hainan Island incident! The fighter and his pilot were lost and the P-3 was...
Note: The wingspan of the Falcon 7X is impressive! Measuring 26 meters, they are bigger than the aircraft itself. I bet that this is an incredible machine to fly. Seen here lining up on runway 35 at Cascais, after spending a couple of days on...
Note: Cascais had the opportunity to receive eleven airplanes participating on the Aéro France Rally for the weekend! They arrived on the 31th of May, and departed two days later, inbound Seville, Spain. This nice Cirrus was the forth to land...
Note: Yet another visitor to Cascais during an awesome weekend! The UEFA's final championship brought a lot of bizjets and all the plane spotters had an incredible time! This was the first arrival of the day and at sunset there was more than 50...
Note: Another beautiful PA-34 making a couple of touch&go's at Cascais! The sound of those two engines are simply astonishing and I miss flying one of those already!! This one had a belly landing back in 2013 and it was stored after that.
Note: Until I came to Lisbon, I hadn't saw many Russian aircrafts, but since I'm here, I've already saw so many great things... From the IL-62, to the magnificent Tupolev 154!! Seen here lining up on runway 03 for departure during the 2010 NATO...
