Went to the airport specially to catch again the Star Alliance livery in TAP's A330. Also had oportunity to catch again the RA-73000 for the second time in one week. To bad they didn't came with the RA-73004 this time…

A resume of the day…

Short final runway 05

Crossing the horizon line :P

Beautiful sight!

The A330 fit's perfectly in my Sigma 50-500 when passing right in front of me. (but to fit in frame, you have to be very careful)

My usual smokey touch down shot!

The weather didn't help, but it help! It was to dark to make good pictures, but if it wasn't to dark the pictures from this side of the runway won't be possible.

Head to head

backtracking runway 05 to departure to Caracas in Venezuela.

“Ilhas Desertas” (desert islands) in background…

Tail close-up


Well what can i say, it's the beautiful Madeira scenario! It's “Ponta de São Lourenço” in background.

Resting after arrived at 9h30.

Will depart around 23h00.

Nice set. For this time of the day, the lack of sun is a blessing.
