    This P3-Orion turned up at the Grantley Adams International Airport this afternoon. I believe it belongs to the Customs and Border Protection of the United States.

    On the night of the 22nd of August, this Avianca Airbus A330-200 -in Star Alliance livery- diverted to Barbados because of a medical emergency. It was flying from Barcelona (Spain) to Bogata (Columbia).

    The weather isn't ideal here today. Rain, low visibility, light light winds and blowing slightly from the other direction. So we have a couple aircraft doing 27 landings. Our Runway is 09/27. Planes land and take off from the 09 side usually when conditions are normal. Today, it's from the 27 end for now.

    Reducing the photos to 800 seems to be taking away from the quality...

    We had an IL76 Cargo yesterday, not often those pass through here but when they do it is usually on fuel or rest stops. Didn't get any photos. Apparently it departed this morning.

    Two Thomson Boeing 787-8s are on their way to Grantley Adams. It's the inaugural trip for the 787 to our island under a carrier. Of course the 787 testbed was here testing in 2011 as well as the 747-8I/F.

    Last week Friday we had the inaugural of the Thomson 787 flights started by G-TUIA and G-TUID. This week, the other two are flying here. G-TUIB which landed about 12 min ago and G-TUIC is about 20 min out. Thomson are expected to get four more 787-800s.
