Barcelona, 13th & 16th May 2022

Post by andygolfer » Sat May 21, 2022 7:07 am

I spent 4 days in Barcelona last weekend for my nephew's wedding and managed a few photos as we arrived and had about 2 1/2 hours when we departed, some interesting subjects but the heat haze restricted my photographic range leaving a few gems un-captured including lots of biz jets when we arrived. I'll put them all in one topic for simplicity starting with Friday 13th as we arrived:

the first time I'd seen an MD-87 for a while, records show this to have been stored at BCN since 2009

I assume this is the cargo or parcels ramp

this was a pleasant surprise, Air Senegal's A319 6V-AMA, FR24 showed it as being present for a couple of weeks and it appeared to be undergoing some TLC. It had departed by Monday but I saw their other A319 (6V-AMB) which was present when I arrived to fly home but unfortunately had departed by the time I got through security so missed a pic of it

this Gulfstream was the only biz that I got anything approaching a useable photo of

and a shady side shot (careful how you say that!) of the Air Senegal A319 as we taxied in..

now onto the 16th all from Terminal 2 on the north side (into sun unfortunately), double glass hinders slightly but at least it was mainly clean..
this Westjet 787 appeared to take a wrong turning and ended up going to what was eventually our gate, it stopped short, was pushed back and did a Cooks Tour of the apron to come round back to the next stand along - gave me just about every conceivable photo angle on it as my flickr page shows

a couple of Norwegian registered 737 Maxes, one Norwegian Airlines and the other FlyR (first time I'd seen their scheme)

ImageLN-FGF B737 Flyr Barcelona 16-05-2022 8445. by Andrew Goldsmith, on Flickr

another Norwegian 737, this an older 800 series , there were nice angles available as they came onto this stand

this Wizz A321 came onto the same stand soon after the Norwegian departed

the only biz that passed close enough for an unhazed photo

and this was arriving on the northern runway and went to Terminal 1 between the 2 runways
ImageD-AIUA A320 Lufthansa Barcelona 16-05-2022 8424. by Andrew Goldsmith, on Flickr

unfortunately I was on the left side of the aircraft as we taxied and terminal one was on the right so I missed all the aircraft on the gates there, and a closer view of the cargo/parcels ramp and that MD87 a costly mistake photo wise.
I could see another MD-80 in the distance at the eastern end of the airfield and Google Earth shows it and another smaller aircraft on a concrete apron which is effectively isolated from the taxiways, not sure what it's doing there or what ti i.d. is so if anybody knows I'm curious please
there are several more in my flickr album,
thanks for looking C&C welcome

I go every year. Lovely place, but as you say the heat haze is ferocious. They use the Pronair mad-dog for towing training.
