h1 May 18th, 2006

The first Airbus A380 to come to the UK landed in Heathrow today. Where I work at the 10 storey Vista Centre in Hounslow is right under the flightpath so we went up on the roof to watch it come in and take a few photos. It was a typical cloudy and hazy day in London so they’re not necessarily as clear as you’d hope

For those who need to know these things it was 004 F-WWDD, landed on the 18th May 2006 at about 13:18 (depending on the accuracy of the clock in my camera).

Here it comes
