Here, I want to show you an unusual image: a plane preparing to land.Sometimes, planes land over the front of Gibraltar --like in this picture--; but, usualy, they land over the back of the Rock the reason use to be the bad weather, the wind--.

This is the plane, that is flying to the Airport of Gibraltar (on the left side of the picture).Here you can not see any cloud ("Montera") on the top pf Gibraltar, perhaps because the wind changed to Poniente.Here, in this area, the wind is abble to change several times, in a day.

This is another view of Gibraltar --althought it happened the same day--.In this picture, you can see the typical "Montera = Cap", that you can see, over Gibraltar, when the wind is named "Levante".It does not matter if the weather is cloudy or clear --like this day--, because the "Montera" (a solitary cloud) shall be there --well..., when the weather is cloudy, that special cloud (Montera) shall be mixed with the rest; but...it shall be there--.Then, I can tell you that: when the wind comes from Levante, the planes use to land from the front of Gibraltar and, ehwn the wind comes from Poniente, the planes use to land from the back of the Rock.
