Rumor: Did A380 Ever Come To Hong Kong Last Year?

OVer a couple of drinks, my friend informed me that the A380 during secret test flights did actually land and visit Hong Kong to test Chep Lap Kok's capabilities to handle this jumbo?

He works at the ATC and is a employee of the Hong Kong Airport Authority the governing body of the HKG airport.

I was wondering if it was true that the A380 actually made a visit to HKG last year during test flights. Since HKG was constructed with accomodating the a380 in mind and the extra long runway.. i was wondering if it was true that the dolphin did visit Hong Kong?

Also since no airline has planned visits to HKG on the A380 maybe it is true Airbus just wanted to test HKG's capabitlieis and dropped by for a few hours?

any comments would help

thanks again

Uhm, the A380 has only been flying since April this year. Seriously doubt Airbus secretly flew it to Hong Kong last year.....

There was another equally silly one today bashing Airbus, but I see it's already been deleted.
