Was this the most interesting visitor to LIS for Euro 2004?

What so interesting about a French 747 when they got a whole lot of CIS Ilyushins and Tupolevs ? (not sure about LIS but saw lots of pictures at Faro in the database recently).

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

Corsair do not fly to LIS very often and rarely with a B747.

You could say the BA 744s that were used could be classed as an interesting visitor to LIS

When you hear the noise of the Tartan Army Boys, we'll be coming down the road!

Hello everyone!

This is my first post here, although I've been a regular (more like addicted!) reader for some years.  Smile

Corsair was indeed a very uncommon sight here, but it was not the only 747 that came to LIS during the Euro 2004. Please note that the only regular B747 traffic at LIS is the TAAG B747-300 D2-TEA or D2-TEB, so we got pretty excited to see these many news!

We've had the following hightlights:
* B747-400 - BA, LH and JAL
* B747-300 - Corsair, Air Pullmantour (I may be missing one or two 747s)
* A340-300 - Olympic (3 in a day!), BWIA, AF and EgyptAir (not Euro related)
* B777-200 - Varig (also with MD11)
* A330-233 - Air Greenland (OY-GRN... stunning!)

And a handfull of Yak42s, Tu154Ms, L1011s, not to mention dozens of BBJs, ACJs and other very interesting bizjets.
On the days of the great games (ex. England-France, Holand-Portugal and the Final), LPPT got around 700 aircraft movements per day, the usual number being around 200-300.

And I'm not even refering to OPO and FAO, or Cascais. They got their share too!!
