well its pushing 2 months since they rolled out the aircraft and in a month or less its due to have its first flight. I think they would have conducted some form of tests with it by now.

Well, that's interesting... me too was wondering why they haven't started taxi tests yet... do some of you guys know how much time is usually needed to carry out those tests ...?

If God had wanted men to fly he would have given them more money...

The Airbus A380 has already began taxi tests under its own power. From what I've been told it has been going on for quite a while now. I believe since the beginning of January.

Sources within the industry are saying March 29, but Airbus is remaining tight lipped about the first flight date. It could push well into the first week of April in the case of unfavorable weather.
