In the Pink in Lanzarote

Post by stevep22 » Tue Sep 18, 2018 1:54 pm

Seen at Lanzarote Airport this lunchtime was this ATR-72-600 of the Brazilian operator Azul. Operated inbound as flight AD9841 from Espargos in Cape Verde. It carries a special 'Pink Ribbon' colour scheme to promote Breast Cancer awareness.

tasty Steve! well caught.

Were you at the airport or conveniently located at an airport near the flight path? In the past I've sometimes booked a hotel close to the flightpath and acted surprised when the wife notices the aircraft noise! Caletta Del Fuste on Fuerteventura is notable for that - I keep telling her we should go back for another winter break ;)

Not a regular service sadly. Being returned to the lessor at the end of its lease. Apparently been expected for some time routing from Natal in Brazil via Espargos, Lanzarote and onwards to Toulouse. As I understand it, there is a second airframe waiting at Natal to make the same trip.

We are staying at Las Gaviotas in Matagorda. Set back a little from the front but can photograph most stuff with ease with the 70-300mm zoom. It's barely 30 yards to the front from our room which is where the ATR photos were taken from. In this case from a small area just across the promenade from the Beatriz Playa hotel.

By way of example of shots from our patio.

Hi Steve,
Nice catch of the pink, I was in Gran Canaria and we had PR-ATP into Las Palmas about 45mins after this went into Lanzarote.

Kind regards
Phill

You assume right - you definitely got the better deal!

Kind regards
