Location: Fiumicino FCO
Date: March 2017
A quick visit to Rome and Fiumicino Airport was needed to catch up with some of the Alitalia fleet. Fiumicino ( FCO ), has a good variety of traffic and a few good spots to photograph them. There are the normal legacy carriers from around Europe and a good selection of Low Cost Carriers. Blue Air appear to have a couple of 737's based here now. Alitalia have painted quite a few of their fleet in the new scheme which is very pleasing to the eye in the right light. Wizz Air now send Airbus A321's in place of the A320's.
It is always good to see Aerolineas Argentinas from South America but for me some of the highlights were The ATR and Saab 2000 from Etihad Regional, The Air China 787-9 and Air Canada 787-9, the Thai Airways Airbus A350 but top of the list was the Antonov Design Bureau AN124.
