clear for takeoff

airbus a380

Eric is probably going to be upset that I scooped him on this, but the brand spankin’ new Airbus A380 had it’s very first flight today. To say that this plane is incredible would be a vast understatement. I’ve done some reading on it and saw a cool TLC or Discovery documentary a month or two back and the size of this plane and the technology in it is just mind blowing. You can view pictures and even some cool video clips at the Airbus website. In one of the articles, Jacques Rosay (Chief Test Pilot) is quoted as saying it was “like handling a bicycle.”
