Man, it doesn't show signs of stopping!

December 2009

5 hours delay at Milan (Malpensa Airport) due to heavy snowfall!

Beautiful scenario although passengers were not that happy...

A319-111 CS-TTR 'Soares dos Reis'


An Air France A320-100 which was already due for departure 

Wings covered with snow:



The cargo door is opened, also covered with snow

And... more snow... all over the windows!



And finally some kind of artistic shot...


Obviously we had to go through a complete de-icing procedure before departure which took some 15 to 20 minutes more.

The weather outside was really frightful and I had a cinema to go with some friends. But since there's nothing we can do... let is snow, let it snow! As I arrived at 1:40am at Lisbon I had my cinema plans ruined that night and my LHR flight cancelled today.

Now I will enjoy a couple of days off! (No! damn it! I have to study for my college exams...)

Warsaw & Frankfurt

December 2009

These are photos of this week.

First from Warsaw. The weather there was cold although bearable. What really bothers me is the rain. Nevertheless, staying at the hotel room is not an option!

nice Christmas tree!

This one was taken inside the Mall near our hotel 

And finally one photo taken today at Frankfurt International Airport...
