Have you not had a chance in the umpteen million other threads on the 380 to voice you're opinion on that?? Was it really necessary?

Awesome video though!

I agree, this is supposed to be an aviation forum for enthusiasts and not one to constantly derate the products of our affection. Sure, people are entitled to their opinions but come on, enough is enough.

Couldn't agree more! pointing out that you think the plane is "ugly" is just a waste of a post.

As far as the video, it was absolutely amazing to watch it. Was that a 737 around the middle of the video?

I can't see the video. Is there anything special to do in flightglobal.com to see the videos  scratchchin ? because everytime I have tried it, I haven't been able to see a single video.

Thanks for the help

You know, I can't wait until this Goddamned plane is certified and flying, and we can put all this bullcrap behind us, because it is getting to be absolutely friggen rediculous.

Very cool. How strong were those crosswinds? I hope the testing guys had some of those bags. And that "bizjet" beside the whale in the video does look like a toy. It looks this big:  airplane

Well, if you're tired of it, then leave.. none of us are gonna be upset about it.


Anyway, i have a question about crosswind tests:
When such a test is performed, are the take-offs and landings performed with different weights?

Don't get your hopes up. Plenty of A340 bashing going on, just pick a thread at random to find it. Having the A380 certified won't stop it.

Oh, and awesome video, I can't imagine what it would be like to take off and land in wind like that. Any reason why he was landing one direction and taking off the opposite way? Would it have mattered I guess? Just figured both would be in the same direction...
