Hello guys! It's been a looong time since I was away. My vacations in Argentina were awesome. I really enjoyed it. We laughed every day.
I missed this forum very much. I could get online a few times while I was at my grandma's house.
Anyway, I've been reading some of the new posts here to catch up, but I still got hundreds of them to read. I returned to Portugal on Tuesday afternoon at about 16:05 GMT time. All of the flights were awesome! I enjoyed flying on the A340-600 and the other aircrafts. Iberia was the airlines I have flown with. Some people of the crew were nice and some not. I guess they were tired of serving passengers up everyday.
I took lots of pictures. I haven't upload them to internet, but will do it probably tomorrow and write my trip report with pictures included. This
time I took better pictures than before. You'll see.
These days I've been busy with my driving license. Today I took my final driving exam and guess what......................
I passed the exam ❗ ❗ ❗ I'm so glad! In Portugal is too hard to get the license and in one month I will have it. 😀
Okay, my trip report is coming up with pictures and all! I will only tell you that the landing of the A340-600 in the Buenos Aires to Madrid flight was so challenging!! Heavy winds on final approach made the landing so enjoyable to me. It looked like the A340-600 touched down with the left main landing gear and then the right main landing gear, following the nose gear. After the nose gear touched down the pilot turned the aircraft in a little aggresive way to line the A340-600 up with the centerline.
More information coming soon!
Well done on your driving test Agus

PS I have driven in Portugal(South Algarve) and all I have to say is
Thanks guys! 😀 You are the best!
TTT, if I remember well, I haven't been on South Algarve, but I want to go there. They say that it's a beautiful place to stay. I can go there by myself now... 😎
It is a very beautiful place,but the IC4 which runs from Faro to the West coast has been voted the most dangerous stretch of road in Europe
I have seen many accidents on that road
It is getting better,but its the old parts of the road where there are many lane changes
The new N125 is great,but the same as any motorway
The IC4 is the most dangerous road in Europe? Wow, I didn't know that...
You are right, all motorways are bored.
Got the road number wrong
Portugal has the highest road death rate in the EU at 21 per 100,000 population (in 2000), more than three times the British rate.
One reason is the country’s motorways. There are 14.1 deaths per billion vehicle kilometres on Portuguese motorways, compared with just two in Britain.
One of Portugal’s most notorious motorways is the IP5. Running from Aveiro to Vilar Formoso, the IP5 provides Portugal’s main link with the rest of Europe. It is also one of the country’s most difficult highways to drive on, dropping rapidly from mountain height to sea level.
Since it was opened a decade ago, the IP5’s hairpin bends, unclear road markings and risky overtaking spots have claimed the lives of almost 400 people.
Just be careful 👍
Welcome back! 😀
The place hasn't been the same without you.
I'll be careful TTT. Don't worry. 😉
Crash, thanks for your comment! 😀
Welcome Back!!!! 😀
Good on ya for the driving test. 👍
Welcome back Captain. And Happy New Year...!!! And congratulations on your license...!!!
I am now going to upload my shots and write the trip report 😀
Welcome back Captain Agus! As Crash said it just hasn't been the same without you, it sounds like you had a great trip and holiday, and I'm glad to hear you got to ride in your dream aircraft, the A346. Looking forward to the trip reports, too! 😀

Hello Corgi. When you joined Fly Away I was away on my vacations.
