Love those Monarch’s and Virgin’s 747. 😏


Thanks man! Yeah, that part was a bit bad, but i could still watch the planes. It was a weard day in terms of weather.

What camera/equipment did you use?

Thanks for the kind words!

Just take the beautiful a350 from HK! Advice: check the prices one year earlier. I got this amazing fare OPO-MAD-HKG for 340€ on Iberia and Cathay.

Pretty cool pictures, shame Monarch has ceased operations, their livery was one of my favorites.

Thanks! Yeah, thats a shame. Even though 2017 was the safest year, it was a bit sad in some aspects (cease of AB and Monarch).

The Cathay a350 is just 😍 I really wish to ride these one day as i fly cathay to the philippines sometimes


Yeah, Hainan’s livery is amazing. You lucky! You get to see the a350 regularly!

They will change the plane one day, you ll see! 😀

It’s great to have such a color variety, unfortunately here in Mexico we only have blue planes haha. JetBlue, AeroMexico, Interjet, Delta, magnicharters, Panalpina, United, Copa, ANA, KLM, China Southern… and much more! Enjoy that beautiful variety taking a lot of pictures, just remember that there are lots of places where we don’t have that ;)

I like this one the most. Would make for a great wallpaper. 👌



Actually, where i live (OPO/Porto) we dont have a wide variety of planes. It is good, but not amazing. Manchester has a lot more to offer. I was lucky to get there this summer as well as beautiful Scotland. The variety in EGCC is amazing.
