Thanks guys, she is a big girl. But form the outside, not that pretty to look at actually. And she is kinda slow. But the inside is just impressive. On the tarmac they had another one next to a 747-400 and she made the boeing look small.

Yes that is true same as only the most major airports can handle the 777 aircraft.

Very nice series and you got a cockpit shot as well, something you really can't get these days because of security issues etc

Yes only the major international airports can handle her, but like it was mention. The 777 and 747 airports can handle her. Airbus has taken their test bed A380 to test airports that can meet the A380 landing requirements. Some of those airport will not handle the A380 normally. But might be used for medical emergency like moncton international in Canada.

Very cool. How did you get access to such an event?

Nice to see the big guy up close and inside, especially the first class area.

I was fortunate enough to see and get pictures of a couple of Emirates A380s getting ready for morning departures in Dubai a few years ago. I was amazed to see how BIG they were. It was cool to see 3 or 4 of the big guys in and around the same place that morning. Unfortunately, we were on a 777 to Houston but Id love to fly on a 380 one day.

Thanks for the up close and personal shots!
