After a long delay,i've finally got a few minutes to get this down.

30/07/03
IB8481 - DHC-8Q-315 - PH-DMU - 11F
MAH-PMI
SCH DEP:0735
ACT PSH:0736
SCH ARR:
ACT ARR:0813

Having decided I needed to get some spotting in at PMI I took a day trip.

Check-in was painless,no que,no problems in accepting my BA Exec card either.

Took in a quick coffee prior to heading through to the Domestic departure area.

Boarding started at 0715 for the 0735 departure,the usual bus was waiting to take us off to our plane.

As i'd come to expect,the Air Nostrum crew were very attractive and friendly.The plane was kitted out in the standard 2-2 leather layout.

Todays load was about 80%,thankfull I once again managed an empty seat behind me.

One interesting note,there were 2 police or cival gaurds seated at the very rear of the aircraft,both with firearms - a first for me!

A quick taxi out to the single runway and we were off the ground at 0756.

The DHC-8 is quite loud on takeoff and virbation is quite harsh,but it's like that on the ATP's and ATR's i've been on in the past.

The cabin service consisted of OJ or Water(served in real glass) with a choice of nuts.

All too soon we began to descend towards PMI.

We touched down at 0813,nots sure what time we were due,forgot to check.

The usual bus took us to arrivals,driving past a Dutchbird 320,Iberworld 320 and a few Transavia 738's.

I'll post the return in a few moments.

And the return....

After a days spotting in the parking garage,it was time to head back to MAH.

IB8490
PMI-MAH - DHC-8Q-315 - PH-DMQ - 11F
SCH DEP:1900
ACT DEP:1908
SCH ARR:19??
ACT ARR:1941

Since i'd been issued the return boarding pass I headed through security and headed for a beer.

A little closed to departure I went to the gate area.I'd avoided heading here as it is in the central part of the Palma facility with almost no viewing ability.Had another beer and walked down the stairs to board the bus.

Wednesday is not the best day to spot at PMI,i'd only made 49,but that was better than nothing.All th past trips to FRA,DUS and HAM resulted in not needing most of the Air Berlin's etc....

The ramp was almost empty as we drove out to our plane,again the load was about 80%.

After a short taxi the engines spooled up and we left the ground at 1916.

Inflight service was as before,Water,OJ and nuts.

Nothing much else to say,landed at 1941 and passed a departing Britannia 762 bound for LGW.

Since I had no luggage I was out in arrivals less tahn 10 minutes later.

Air Nostrum service is very good.The FA's are polite,the planes clean,and i'd use the service again.

Nice and short,makes a change!

Thanks Frederic,

I've still got to get around to BA LHR-MXP-LHR,hopefully this week some time.

Do we have a planned date for the next FRA spotters meet?

I forgot to ask this: was the DHC8 comfortable?

Personally I found the legroom in the ones of BA to be very big.
