    Skiathos - Europe's SXM

    Hello all,

    I visited Skiathos on a family holiday earlier this month which resulted in three visits to this stunning airport.

    The first day saw two Thomson 757's from and to Manchester and Gatwick as well as a Volotea 717 which I was pleased to catch.

    The second visit wasn't planned but as there were severe storms in the morning we decided to head to the town and stopping by at the airport. Two of the aircraft I caught were positioning in from near by islands after diverting earlier in the day due to weather. The highlight was the Arke 737 which performed an amazingly close 180 and the crew have us all a wave and thumps up, before putting the full thrust on seriously close to the fence for around ten seconds which caused many people to get hurt and loose mobile phones. One teenager was flung around 20 feet into the sea.

    Anyway here are the photos. Keep an eye on my Youtube for videos from the airport too...
