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

Note: This old friend doesn't come much to MDE, but I was greatly surprised to see her taxiing for departure.
In this Cessna 177RG I had my final checkride (in-flight test) to obtain my Colombian commercial Pilot's licence.
So much joy and...
Note: The surprise of the day, transporting some engines for Avianca.
It's only the second airline to ever bring a Boeing 777F to MDE besides LAN Cargo, back when they operated them (and even then it was seldom).

This was Interjet's first flight on the MDE-MEX sector, this particular Airplane having arrived two hours earlier from Cancun CUN on that sector's very first flight as well.
Note: Unexpected visitor. Estelar had some scheduled flights between Caracas and Miami. Since there are no commercial flights between Venezuela and the United States now, they decided to fly their Miami bound passengers to MDE, give them to Viva...
Note: Seconds away from landing in Aruba after one of the most remarkable flights I've had the pleasure to have.
Nine hours from Amsterdam on-board the mighty McDonnell-Douglas MD-11.
I'm glad I had the chance!
Note: Charter flight arriving nonstop from Santiago. First ever LATAM 787 to land in MDE, and first ever 787 different than the ones flown by Avianca to land in MDE as a matter of fact. Departed back to Santiago a couple of hours later.
Note: As we climb out from Panama Pacifico Airport BLB enroute to Medellin MDE we see the Panama Canal, the Puente de las Americas (Bridge of the Americas), the Casco Viejo of Panama City (Old Quarter), Cerró Ancón (Ancon Hill), the Cinta...
