Finals to Land – Funchal, Madeira
Thought for the day….”If the world seems cold to you, kindle some fires to warm it”.
” When something is ” new and improved” , which is it?”
Did you know that until recently, the longest scheduled flight was the flight by Singapore Airways from Singapore to Newark, USA, a trip of 18.5 hours? One of the longest flights now is the Delta Airlines flight between Johannesberg, South Africa and Atlanta, USA, a trip of some 17 hours non-stop. And for distance, Qantas has a flight from Sydney to Dallas, a distance of some 13 600km/8500 miles. For short flights, the scheduled service between the Scottish islands of Westray and Papa Westray is scheduled to take just 2 minutes, although a tail wind can reduce this to 90 seconds. And did you know that a Boeing 747 is made up of around 6 million parts, and has a top speed of 955 km/h? The photo today is of an Airbus A320 arriving at Funchal, Madeira. This airport is famous for its often windy approaches due to the surrounding mountain, although no sign of any turbulence for this Monarch Airlines flight.
and another photo from the archives….a market stall in Helsinki, Finland.
