saw three at the weekend - two at the same time next to one another at Frankfurt. Man, they're big.

Nice clouds.

Yep quite big, it's funny to see the wings moving when the plane take off and they are much more silent than the 744!
Stay hungry, stay foolish!

Like this shot, John. If I'd have you were there I would have joined you. I've got several shots of it going over here. A great aeroplane.

That thing is huge. I went past the factory in Tolouse and down the road all the parts travel by. Really weird seeing the high security overnight stops for the drivers.

Very nice shot of a very impressive aircraft...I was fortunate to work on the A380 in Toulouse during its conception and thoroughly enjoyed it, you get even more sense of the size from inside with all the interior stripped out, it would make a great 5-a-side football pitch!!

Quite a beast, isn't it? Hope it's a success a few jobs round here depend upon it! (Great capture, by the way.)
Best wishes,

Flew on one from Singapore to Melbourne. They're good on the inside too - quiet, and relatively spacious.

Not only a nice aircraft - it's a good image! Like the background, and the angle of the sunlight on the fuselage. The exposure works for me as well.
