Hi Everyone,

My first post as a 1st class member ( been a lurker for 2 yrs). I love this place!

Do any Aussie members know the actual ETA of the A380 next week? I sure want to be out at Mascot to see this 1st timer. There seems to have been very little newsmedia comment so far

I believe that the Sydney board has posted sometimes of her arrival/departure for the Aussie trip. Not sure if its still valid.


Sunday 13/11
0630 (approx) BN - 0900 Flyover SY Harbour
1000 Arrive SY

Monday 14/11
0900 SY - 1000 ML


This information is available on the Sydney Airport message board, originally posted by Cameron D.

The aircraft is going to Singapore on 10 Nov 2005. A terminal is being built to accomodate the numerous A380 flights. Existing aerobridges are also being modified to accomodate the A380.

Any updates on arrival into SYD? Also, any clues where they will be parking it, or where the best spot will be for photos?

A380 Visit to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne Latest News
Sydney, 10 November 2005
Qantas announced today a schedule for the visit to Australia of the Airbus A380 between 12 and 16 November. The visit will coincide with Qantas' 85th anniversary celebrations.

The Executive General Manager of Qantas, Mr John Borghetti, said the aircraft would arrive in Brisbane on the morning of Saturday 12 November.

"We are continuing to work closely with Airbus on making this historic event a reality," Mr Borghetti said.

While times are subject to change, the current schedule (local times) for the A380's Australian visit is:

Saturday 12 November
* 8:00am Arrive Brisbane

Sunday 13 November
* 6:00am Depart Brisbane
* *8:30am Flyover Sydney Harbour for Qantas aerial photography (weather permitting)
* 9:10am (approx) Arrive Sydney

Monday 14 November
* 11:15am Depart Sydney
* 12:30pm (approx) Arrive Melbourne

Tuesday 15 November
* 9:00am Depart Melbourne
* 10:00am (approx) Arrive Brisbane

Wednesday 16 November
* 2:00pm Depart Brisbane

Mr Borghetti said that the A380 had generated enormous levels of interest in Europe and Qantas expected this to continue for the aircraft's visit to each city.

"While both Qantas and Airbus are pleased that there is so much interest in the A380, opportunities for members of the public to view the aircraft will unfortunately be limited to arrival and departure times.

"We are asking Qantas, Australian Airlines, QantasLink and Jetstar customers to allow extra time for travel to their departure airport, in case of congestion," Mr Borghetti said.

He said that people who were not travelling were advised to avoid the airport vicinity to minimise congestion during the A380's visit to each port.

"In Sydney, the aircraft will fly over the harbour on Sunday 15 November*, with local vantage points providing excellent opportunities to view the aircraft inflight," Mr Borghetti said.

Qantas was the first airline to sign a contract for the A380 and will take delivery of the first of its 12 aircraft in April 2007.

* Note the aircraft will pass over Sydney Harbour from north to south and east of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at 2100 feet and be accompanied by a small jet that will be undertaking aerial filming. This will take place as many as three times. The flyover will provide excellent opportunities for members of the public to view the aircraft.

As per Airbear, does anyone know where it will be parked at SYD? I'm thinking the general area, behind T2.

Maybe a viewing advantage in the Krispy Kreme carpark, mmm work off those calories whilst gazing at the A380....



Air New Zealand, nothing else needed to be said...

Thats where the T7 was parked up when she was here. I am assuming she will go there too. I can't believe that it is only a few days away.

But you can keep your donuts.
