Milan (MXP) Malpensa Airport, 08th May'06. A day trip to an airport I've never been to before. No spectators area, so almost all photos taken through double glazed windows, on a less than clear and sunny day, so sorry for poorer quality than usual.....! Main reason to go was to see Alitalia commuters & big boys, as well as all the local charter airlines we don't see here in the UK.
