Flying around snowy Mt. Teide

It is February, and finaly the winter has started in Tenerife… After one week of rain, the highest mountain of Spain has been covered with snow.

Today it was a privilege to enjoy good flying weather to enjoy this beautiful scenery.

Cessna 172N at dusk

Just went out on a sunday evening to practice a little bit with my camera’s, and here is the result….

The next one is not the best one, taken with the Gopro Hero4 Silver. But I like the lights and colors anyway… 🙂

During this 2 hours we were watching the planes taking off and landing and I made a short timelapse of the sunrise as well.

Safe landings! 🙂

Vortices

Yesterday I was flying for the first time a Cessna 182 with 230 hp. It’s like an rocket in comparation with the 172 or PA-28 that I am flying usualy.

On this flight I’ve installed the gopro under the wing looking backwards to get a different view, and not always the same… 🙂

The result of this was finding 2 images where you can clearly see the vortices behind the plane in the clouds.

Enjoy them with me! 🙂

Safe flying!

Around La Palma in 2:48 minutes

On my last flight I went to visit the island La Palma; and we did a round flight as well.

I took the opportunity to make a timelapse, so everybody can see the coast of the island in less than 3 minutes.

Enjoy it!

And also some images as well…

Up in the air

Well. I have decided to my make my second compilation of my flights. As I’ve found music that I loved, and thought it would be great in the video, I started to edit it, and here it is: my second compilation: Up in the air.

I hope you’ll enjoy it! I would be thankful for any good ideas (or send me a link of yours if you have one…).

Safe flying!

 

2 islands on 1 image

What else can we ask than calm winds and a good visibility? Maybe a full fuel tank, file the flight plan and get airborne to enjoy these views…

An image says more than 1000 words, so enjoy some of the views from my last 1 hour 40 minute long flight along Tenerife´s and La Gomera´s coast. 🙂

Safe landings!
