Despite being known for difficult approaches, the pilot of this Hungarian-registered 737 had no problems landing at Funchal Airport, Madeira. In the background one of the Islas Desertas is visible, one of several islands that make up the group in Madeira (with the island of Porto Santo being the second largest). Some those onboard the aircraft will be heading towards the capital, Funchal, whose old streets are in the second photo. Whilst there, they may sample one of the local special drinks, called Nikita, a mixture of white wine, beer, ice-cream, pineapple and sugar or hike up to the highest point on the island at 1818m. Although officially part of Portugal, the islands are semi-autonomous, and benefit from a fantastic year-round climate. Around 265 000 people live in Madeira, although it receives around 1 million tourists a year, mostly from the European Union (especially Germany, the UK and Scandinavia).
