This was my second visit to São Miguel Island and my first time flying with SATA Internacional. The aircraft for the outbound flight was the mighty A310 with reg. CS-TGU and named "Terceira".
Some photos of the flight...

Now, let's see some of the beautiful sights of the Island...
Lagoon of Sete Cidades,
Lagoon of Congro (this one is not very known among the tourists),
Lagoon of Fogo,
the famous fumaroles,
some lava formation,
municipality of Nordeste,
Vila Franca do Campo,
and the capital Ponta Delgada.
Finally, the photos of the return flight on board A310 CS-TGV named "São Miguel" - a much proper name for this trip!
