Very nice, my friend!
Interesting to see that most are A32x family, contrary from what we see in 1/500 scale!! Quite ironic, eh?
Here I see every day, climbing, TAM A319, A320, A321, A330-200 or 767-300, Gol 737-300, 737-700, occasionally 737-800, 737-800WL, sometimes 737-700 and -800 in Varig colors, Azul E-190 and E-195, Webjet 737-300, Sometimes Oceanair F-100, TRIP E-175 and ATR-72; FAB EMB-110, EMB-120 and Xavante, American Airlines 757-200WL, TAP A330-200, Variglog and Total Cargo 727-200Fs, Some occasional charters like Icelandair 757-200WL and Neos 767-300WL... I only need a good camera!

Sergio

PS. when I was writting I was attracted by an unusual sound: it was an Il-76 in all white livery (probably UN) struggling to climb!!

Thanks my friend. I made these photos with a Nikon D50, and i had to change the jpeg in gif to post the photos on the forum. Believe me: in jpeg these photos are really impressive, and especially the British Airways B767-300 you can see the head of the co-pilot out of the cockpit (probably a female)! Very happy to see the British Airways B737-400 and many many A320. I have lost a Norwegian B737-800WL with a white tail...
I think you are very close to the airport...lucky man!
I was very close to the runway, as you can see, but in Italy the Government is enemy of spotters: also if you are making photos, for two or three times you are stopped from the Police asking you the documents and asking you :"what are you doing?". What am i doing with a camera??? Photos to the airplanes! They stare amazed you and they tell you to not to bee too much time. Mine is a very strange country.

No, I'm far from the airport!
I know Recife is a paradise for E-jets spotting, because it's the first stop of the delivery flights to Europe, Africa and Asia, and they spend the night here. And it's a stopover for delivery flights of Airbus narrowbodies coming from Hamburg to South American customers. I still don't know the spotter's situation here in Brazil, seems it's much better, but in Italy I was once about to tell very bad words towards a military telling me to not take pics of (very old and unused) military installations on an Air show. My friend was about to tell him "what my camera cannot see, the spy sattelites above can see better, you stupid fu...."

In fact it is strange to see a British Airways B767 landing at Rome, normally there is B737 or A320/321. It is strange to see the head of the pilot outside the cockpit too!

Nice pics! Do you get any 747s at Rome? I believe that Thai operates it to FCO?

Thai, JAL, Malaysia Airlines, sometimes Cathay Pacific ...but these airplanes normally lands at 16R-34L runway, a parallel runway respect where i have done the photos.

re: Rome "Leonardo da Vinci" Fiumicino FCO / Ciampino CIA

Hi friends. In the next days i will come back to Fiumicino Airport and i will try to make new photos: "i will try" because the situation has worsened since last year! If last year there were the barbed wire that prevented to make good photos and the police who seems to be a great enemy of the spotters, now it is hard to get close to the airport to take pictures.
I don't not exactly when, but i will try to spend a good day spotting some landing airplanes.
Meanwhile i want to share again the photos of last year spotting day.
