    Default Living Near Airbus Has It's Benefits

    Today was Airbus' Family Day where the employess bring friends and family and the company puts on a show.

    These photo's were taken from my bedroom window....















    Yep, that's the Airbus A380, the big **** off double decker thing performing manouvres just a couple of hundred feet above the house!!

    It was amazing to watch, it appeared to be moving so slowly it was simply majestic in its movement!! It's truely amazing to see what a plane of that size is capable of.

    Surprisingly not!! For a big plane it's very quiet when doing these manouvres.

    It made one hell of a roar on landing using the reverse thrusts, and the runway is about 0.75 miles from me

    I am surprised they still have that one in corporate livery and haven't sold it on yet
    New customers could easily be shown one near completion now

    However, they may be following the same policy as Boeing that keep the "prototype" until all the initial batch of sales are completed

    Trials and development aircraft are always in use by the company. If it is still the original one, it will more than likely be a very different beast than the production ones due to wiring modifications/test equipment etc.
