Gran Canary 2010

We jumped on a Spanair plane to escape the cold and icy winter in Germany for at least some days and spent New Year's Eve at Las Palmas' Gando Airport! A great trip with some rarities. We could also recommend Spanair for these short flights from Madrid to Las Palmas despite the delay which quite often affects you when you fly Spanair - but that's past unfortunately. Spanair ceased its operations in 2012. Not the only one, disappearing from the sky as you can see when you look at the airlines below - Have fun anyway!

You guessed it, Transavia Denmark is a part of the Danish aviation history, it ceased operations in 2012 as well, a bad year for aviation.

Oh that's an interesting paint scheme! Also back from a Hajj lease to Garuda Indonesia! It also wears the basic orange thing which MyTravel used to paint of their aircraft!

Weell, that's another result of bankrupt airlines - so called "Hyrid colours". This one is a mix between airberlin and Hamburg International which ceased all ops just 2 weeks before this picture was taken.

Just wearing titles before the new Finnair livery was introduced! That's the best hint in aviation - a not fully painted aircraft is always a hint for something new!
