AVIATION & TRAVEL

December 19, 2009

Man, it doesn't show signs of stopping!

Five 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 it 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...)

Wow! That is a massive amount of snow for Italy. I hear there is a ton of snow all over Europe! Great pictures of the aircraft ... de-icing comes in very handy these days.
