I certainly envy your being there skunkworks82, if only for the historical value and a good clean shot of this behemoth.


Years ago I was able to watch a landing of the shuttle piggy-backed on the 747. It was quite the sight at the time, for my then youthful and exuberant eyes.

Less than a week and counting ...

The Airbus A-380 landed for the first time in Montréal (Québec), today.

Several people gather to see it, most were impressed, by how quiet it is.

Here some photos:

I forgot to mention, that after Montréal, that aircraft is heading to Florida. Not sure, if it will visit other US city? Basically, that trip is to study the airport infrastructure (and promotional as well).
