On my way to work this morning, I was pleasantly surprised to see the worlds largest passenger plane land in at the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport. I later found out that the aircraft was staying overnight and also that the airport had set up a viewing area for the public. While I did not have my DL with me, I always carry my P&S Optio 555 with which I captured this image. This aircraft is indeed a super jumbo jet and is an impressive sight!The minute people standing under the rear of the aircraft gives you an image of the scale! Enjoy...

Hi Jay

Excellent shot. The 380 was at Bradly I'NTL yesterday. I wish I had known it would be there. I saw the Video of it landing. My God it is Huge.

Thanks for the comments guys! I read in the local paper that this might be the only time an A380 visits CVG since there are only 7 airports in the US that can handle the commercial airliner (CVG is not one of them). Therefore this picture may have historical value in time to come!!

That is impressive! After hearing all of the hype on the news & otherwise for the last few years, it is pretty cool that that big of a plane is finally in operation & didn't turn into some Spruce Goose.

Thanks for sharing, jelpee!
