Cool that you got to see 2 A380's!

I got to fly on the Emirates A380 in 2013 (JFK to Dubai)...even got to visit the flight deck after we arrived in JFK on the return leg. Incredibly spacious, and incredibly quiet compared to a B747 or even a wide-bodied twin jet. Can't say I'm a big fan of teh A380's exterior design though...the B747 get's my vote for that!

Jehan, the approaching cool weather will provide much better images. These were shot on a 94 degree day and exhibit a lot of thermal distortion. There will be daily opportunities to photograph both of these monsters. If you're ever in the DFW area , look me up as I live right next to the western border of the airport.
