Having recently been at home (Gaia), I couldn't let the oportunity of going to Porto airport pass by just like that. There were some sunny and unusually warm days and I went twice to the airport. This was the first, spending the whole day there:

This white A330 was operating an extra flight for TAAG (D2-TEF was aso spotted that day):
CS-TRI  A330-322  HiFly

F-GZTA  B737-33V(QC)  Europe Airpost
First time seeing a Flybe at OPO operating a flight from Birmingham:

Planespotting in Kathmandu

Hi everyone,
Today is the day that I finally seat down, log in to the blog and upload the Kathmandu photos. Even though I still have a lot to work on photoshop, the basic variety of KTM can be seen on this post. Please notice that there are other airlines (different from those that I'm showing here) operating to KTM during the night or morning. I've spent a total of 4 half days (1 morning and 3 afternoons) at the airport, and by the 4th I was already spotting the same 9N- registered aircraft over and over.

It was a fantastic experience to do Planespotting in Kathmandu. It's one of those International airports that doesn't get much attention and yet, the majority of the traffic can only be seen indide Nepal.
In partnership with website Spotterguide.net I've made an extensive spotting guide for KTM, which I hope will answear to any questions you might have about this airport. You can check it here.
