It was a sunny and calm wind day in Madeira.
The runway in use was 23. As it was 10:30AM, I have the sun right in front of me, leading to backlight photos. So, I've been searching for something new… and I got this :) Have fun! ;) – My web page [ruialves.madeiraspotters.net] –
Position flight from Lisbon (CS-TNN), landing on rwy 05, after a low pass over Funchal city.
My first set of backlight shots of the day: CS-TTB, about to land on rwy 23.
Can you see the Island reflected on the left side of the aircraft? :)
My first set from the correct point of view respective of the sun position.
Easyjet (G-EZBV) flight about to land on rwy 23.
Now one of the ex-GB Airways aircraft, now flown by Easyjet.
CS-TTB climbing from a departure using rwy 05.
While climbing, a crossed angle with another traffic in cruise.
Sata's A320, CS-TKK, on short final to rwy 23.
In sight, “Caniçal” city.
Getting closer :)
Sata's A310, CS-TGU, heading Lisbon from rwy 05.
Nice belly view.
Just above my head, a right bank!
Check the high-speed-aileron on the right wing :) Oh, and there's another engine on the right wing too! :D
Again, CS-TTB, shortly after take-off from rwy 05.
Latter… in backlit conditions, this Eurocypria, 5B-DBR, and the reverse thrust while landing on rwy 05.
Another backlit shot, but still nice reflections on this Sata's A310 belly's (CS-TGV).
Check it out, there's some dust flying away from the left MLG (on the right side of the aircraft as you look at the aircraft).
