The invitation was issued and TAP’s employees accepted. In the air or on the ground, alone or with company, lots of photos were sent by our spotters in response to the call put out on 25 June.
Winning was a pleasant surprise for André Moniz. “I’m very happy and realise that it was worth rushing down to the airport and taking a photo of the retrojet flight for Portugal before catching my flight to Stockholm. I woke up early and saw that the weather wasn’t too good and I considered not going, but my enthusiasm for photography and planes got the better of me. I decided to photograph the retrojet at a low shutter speed to give the background a blurred effect and focus only on the plane. This gave the idea of the speed of the aircraft and brightened up the grey sky a little.”
