the 380 will not fly on 18th January, it is "just" the rollout ceremony. With all the heads of states in TLS I think security will be so strict that you won't get to see anything if you don't have an entrance ticket.

I'd love to but unfortunately I don't think this is going to happen. What I really want to know is, when are we going to see it in Sydney? I think I might just take the day off work for that (along with every other Sydney based photographer, I suspect).
I know my wife is interested in visiting France so maybe I should suggest it. No reason to mention the real reason for going, of course...

MSN 3,5 and 6 all go to Singapore Airlines, 3 is the very first for a customer and it's rego before give to SQ will be F-WWSA.
didn't even notice that, i had an old name here which i had since about early 2003 and i can't for the life of me remember it! so i had to erstart with another name. thanks for that though, getting close to 800 shots too!
as for the trip to TLS, no chance, going to Alaska in may to shoot over at Anchorage, the A380 isn't gonna run away and i'm quite prepared to wait til she makes Australian debut!
you thinking of going over? Airbus aren't even sure that they'll fly it on the 31st, i read that it won't be flown if the weather conditions aren't perfect, so if i go over on the 30th and it rains and the weather is crap for the week i'll be very jacked off.
i'll be back over your way in april too, and keeping tabs on my mate Abby too! hehehe

a true friend is someone who sees the pain in your eyes, while everyone else believes the smile on your face.

Speaking to the MD of a company I will remain private - They have 4 tickets, for the 18th Jan roll-out. Now, Airbus are flying an A340/? to MAN to pick up these lucky guests and will have a full "glitz & glamour" affair. Selected guests have been told the aircraft (A380) wil quote infact "go down the runway, and amaze the world"... Now its not clear what this means - but you never know?
