Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.

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...
Note: Nice rare registration coming all the way from Aruba, in the Caribbean region. Started flying as N62297 back in 2009, then it was exported to Angola as D2-EAA and in 2013 it switched to the P4 registration. Seen here departing in the early...
Note: Amazing view of the mighty 747 about to touch-down on runway 33! And let me say that I haven't seen such a smooth landing in quite a while from the Queen of the Skies. This day the weekly flight was done by World Airways Cargo and I...
Note: The advantage of not going to an airport for so long, is that everything you see seems to be new! Seen here lining up on runway 03 for departure. Unfortunately Aigle Azur ceased operations in September 2019.
Note: Another AMAZING aircraft preserved at the Central Museum of the Air Forces in Monino. The 'Bear' was introduced in 1956 and is still active nowadays. I can only imagine the sweet sound of those four engines working with those amazing...
Note: This KC135 (and three more) came to support 8 F-16s during a two day stop at the Azores! I love the way the light gets in all four CFM-56 engines on such an amazing arrival during the golden hour at Lajes.
Note: There's not a lot of TB20's flying in Portugal... This one used to belong to Academia Aeronáutica de Évora (AAE) and was one of the lucky ones who got sold to a private owner and is still airworthy. On short final runway 35 for a full...
Note: The Queen of the Skies is touching down smoothly at Lajes once again but for the first time in 2011 delivering some goods to the Air Base. This aircraft is stored since 2013 in McMinnville Municipal Airport.
Note: Taxiing to the holding point runway 15 via Papa and Mike with the tanker in the background also taxiing to the same position! This take-off was quite peculiar since they returned to Lajes a couple of minutes later due to an over...
Note: One beautiful 7X landing at Cascais bringing some VIP's to the UEFA's championship final! At the first sight it looks like that someone run out of black ink... But this airplane looks great in anyway.
