Hello.

I was looking @youtube and thought: let's see if they got some video's of Perpignan airport, my second "home" airport. And what do I see: 2 video's, one with A380 landing, and another one with the take-off. Of course, very nice to see the big giant at PGF, not really surprised because PGF is 200 KM from TLS, just as Tarbes where the A380 was also flight testing.

My question, does dis happen often at PGF? Have there been a couple of visits, or just one? When were these video's taken? More info would be great.
These are the 2 vids:





Btw: at the responses to the video's some guy named Razor 9911 says: "sorry to say this but that was not an A380 it was a 747". Hahaha, fantastic, how more wrong can you be?? Beautiful.

Another btw: also at the responses, the maker of the video gave the coordinations where the video was made.

The coordinations above are from the take off spot, beneath the place from where the landing video was made.

Thanks, FJWH

Lovely videos. That plane is so quiet. Can't wait for the troubles to be over and the plane be commercially flying.

I saw it from afar in the summer - It flew over Carcasonne when I was there - made the tourist hell that I was in far more bearable!

It was a silent monster!!

Did you guys see how much dust that thing kicked up??? And folks wonder about separation issues?!? Good lord!


I don't care what you think of my opinion. It's my opinion, so have a nice day :)

The cheapness of the swipe at the 380 is best summed up by your last 2 words

No serious EbbUK.. it was hardly a swipe.. in fact I'm rather in awe frankly.. The whole separation issue is put to bed for now... I just have never seen a vortex that big without extenuating circumstances...

If it was a swipe at anyone it was those blabbering about it not having a big vortex, not the plane itself..

Big planes have big vorticies.. it's physics.. that was just alot more dramatic an example than I expected.

But the facts are such.
1. The separation times are to be reviewed once the plane has been in service, so your assertion isn't as cut and dry. I doubt whether the airbus engineers deliberately sought to defy physics, they made their calculations, judgement needs to be reserved.

2. The airport being used is a smaller one with less movements. so there will be a lot of dust flying around. So even the venerable 757 would blow up some dust (probably not the best example as it has it's own issues when it comes to separation)

Lets leave the issue about vortex's alone for this thread Wink That was an amazing video and I agree with others, it sounds so quiet. If that had been a DC10 or 747 classic then my ears would still be ringing!

Agreed and never said otherwise.. but you still gotta admit.. DAMN!!! LOL.. that's impressive.. whether it's good or bad who cares LOL (see that's the plane geek in me speaking now rather than the business geek LOL).

Well, based on their myriad of errors, IMO, in others areas one can easily assume.

We do not seem to have the answers.
Never heard of the A380 landing at Perpignan, so that one may be a one-off.
Considering the wind sound and instability recorded by the video camera, the test was most probably about landing and take-off in heavy cross-wind.
Thanks for posting these videos by the way.

The A380 pictured is MSN 001 F-WWOW due to the white nose. F-WWOW got a new un-painted radome in mid-May 2006. A football pattern was added to it by mid-June, and the radome was fully painted when F-WWOW went to Farnborough in July.
