Brussels to Madrid with Iberia

On 29th August 2018, at Brussels Airport, the last boarding call sounds for my flight IB3207 to Madrid Barajas Airport.

In the line with my passport, boarding ticket and my spotter bag, I admire A320-200 Iberia (EC-IZH) from the gate.

IB3207 BRU MAD 0740 1005 A320 EC-IZH

During the flight :

Take-off from BRU on runway 25R and little bit turbulent until cruising altitude, 35000ft.

The service on board was generous with one free drink (I took Coke).

After 2,5 hours flight, the Airbus A320 started the approach on MAD from the North.

The weather was sunny and windy during the approach on runway 32L at Madrid-Barajas Adolfo Suarez Airport.

Parked at Terminal 4, I visited the cockpit with the captain and first officer and took some pictures.

At MAD :

Inside the terminal 4, I met a spanish spotter and then I took the subway line 8 AEROPUERTO T4 – NUEVOS MINISTEROS until BARAJAS STATION (first stop).

I walked 15 minutes to a great spotting place.

I stayed 3 hours here and I came back to terminal 4S to take my next flight to London Heathrow with A350-900.
