Madrid Getafe

Post by Kitihawk »

Happy New Year all
I am going to Madrid for a spotting day in 2 weeks time and wondering what A330MRTTs are on the ground at Getafe at the moment.
Kind regards
Paul.

Hi Bennie,
Thanks very much for the reply and the info.
We had to put back the date of the trip and we are now going Saturday 8th Feb. Hopefully the 2 Singapore A330s are still on the ground when we get there, and I was unaware of the fact that there is a C54 there, so will be looking out for that.
Many thanks again.
Paul.

Hey everybody,
My day trip to Madrid is this coming Saturday, does anyone know what is currently present at Getafe and at the maintenance hangers at Madrid?
Kind regards,
Paul.

Estrellaman donned his cloak of invisibility and sallied forth to bring us the A330MRTTs outside here on 10th June:
M1 T-054 fully painted - serial not noted
M2 T-055 fully painted - serial noted on one side of fin
M3 en primeur
F3 043 fully painted for Adel'A
764 RSiAF - still here for crew-training
EC-335 (should become M5/T-058) just arrived no AAR gear installed (thus M4 should be inside)
