Hola! I've been in Madrid now for 9 days and today for the first time in more then a year I headed out to MAD with my dad for an afternoon of spotting. I was very eager to try and find a spot that would give us views of the new terminal area and sure enough a spot was found, the only bad thing about the spot was that it was next to the domestic terminal so decent shots of heavies would be a little hard. Luckily there was an Aerolineas Argentinas 747-400 parked on a remote stand so I was able to take a lot of photos of it. I was very puzzled to see it there considering Aerolineas Argentinas flies in and out of Terminal 1 and this was a 747-400 parked in the domestic remote stands.

I didn't see anything that I haven't seen before except for my first Air Europa A330-200 and I observed more Vueling's then I have in the past.

I caught 5 strobes today, two from the same A321!

Here are some of my better shots of the day including a shot of my spotting location.

Hope you enjoy!

p.s. Hope the guys at JFK today had a great time as well!

Great pics. Does MAD have a designated spotting area? Do the police harass photogs?
