Principe de Asturias at Funchal

Last weekend, Spanish carrier ‘Principe de Asturias’ was at Funchal, with the frigate ‘Alvaro de Bazan’. Not usual to see carriers around here. Even the smallest like this one. As far as I can remember it's been actually the only one I've ever seen live.

Planes weren't on a good position to photograph from the pier. This was the only one on a nice position.

Is he photographing the plane or the blond tourists that were passing by…??

Monday morning, it left, around 8am (actually this pic is back to 10 of June 2006)

João Rodrigues? Training for the Olympics?

Specially the first one is great! This carrier is the only and is becoming "regular" around here!
