Note: Glad that this A319 went all the way to the end for a full-runway takeoff enabling a nice action shot, with the Parque das Nações and the Ponte Vasco da Gama in the background, both build for the Expo 1998.
Note: "Aerosmurf" arriving in Lisbon with the very last light of the day, a few moments before sunset. Nice to see it again, even though I caught it in FRA in the meantime, I missed it narrowly in LIS on my very first encounter, so glad it...
Note: Quite unusual to see such a small aircaft taxiing all the way back to the beginning of runway 21 for takeoff. Leaving beautiful Lisbon towards Dusseldorf with the last sunrways of the day, just a few minutes before sunset.
Note: This Wamos Air A330 is operating Fortaleza flights for TAP at the moment. Formely leased to Saudia, and therefore having the blue tail. Seen here taxiing to the far end of runway 21 on a very fine afternoon in Lisboa.
Note: Pretty happy to catch this nice special. I thought my chances were lost when Azul changed all their Lisbon flights to a A339neo some time back and then additonally that plane went into storage. But eventually PR-AIU was re-activated and...
Note: This aircraft hasnt been in FRA in a while, now wearing "Network Aviation" titles. Seen here flaring on runway 25L as CC347P from Liege, about to operate a heavily delayed flight CC366 to Chicago a few hours later.
Note: Finally the first Condor A339 in the blue colour scheme was delivered. People can say what they want, but it looks awesome. Seen here crossing Frankfurt's taxiway bridge and obviously still looking brandnew, coming back from just its third...
Note: I can't tell why, but somehow I really like the A330-200F's, maybe because the front gear looks so weird, or maybe because they are quite rare. Nice to catch this DHL freighter upon arrival as QY553 from Hongkong via Almaty. Former A6-DCB...
Note: Very nice visitor, as Thai's 787s typically dont fly to europe and they have only two -9's in the fleet eventually. Came as an addtional flight to pick up passengers that were left stranded due to a massive strike some days earlier. The...
Note: I think the 330 neo looks great in Air Belgium's livery. Operating for Condor on the FRA-Punta Cana route at the moment, after they cancelled the contract with Smartlynx due to too many complaints. Seen here arriving in FRA on a (rather...
