Just Got back from being 300 ft under the belly of the new big guy! It was so cool, It was a quiet approach, smooth landing but the nose was a bit wobbly so many people were there, it was just a moment to never forget. I hope to get my video footage up soon on Flight level 350 since my camera batteries died on approach! Good to have my brother with his camcorder near by. How did everyone else feel when seeing this monster?

Nice! The weather was clear and bright at JFK. I wish Lufthansa had put on temporary Star Alliance or Lufthansa liveries on these jets.

Nice shots. I was at Imperial Hill with some workers so I was on the wrong side of the airport, but the taxi right by us was awesome.

I plan on being there when it leaves..Word has it, that it leaves at 7:30 3/20, is this true?

7:30 is the estimated time of departure, I hope to be at Imperial Hill by 7 p.m. to set up. Sun set is at 7:10 p.m. but they say it will be cloudy and raining tomorrow.

Great shots. I would have loved to have been there to see it, less alone LAX in general. Big grin

Thanks for sharing!

How did everyone else feel when seeing this monster?

Thanks for taking my picture. In your first photos I'm at the 1:00 position to the policeman on the hill with his arms folded, I'm wearing a black hat.

Landing was great to see, but the United 747-8 landing a few minutes before the 380 took away a little of the wow factor on the size. Still very impressive.



I am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end.

Anyone remember as that UA 744 was coming in how everyone was getting excited and building up, and then they saw it wasn't the A380, and they just  relieved .

All the spirit went out of them... for a second before someone else realized that the A380 was coming THEN... Big grin

Why did the A380 not go to a gate @ LAX? Didn't one just get installed?

Did the United 747-8 arrive before or after a United 757 with winglets?  stirthepot

I completely forgot that it was coming in today... I was driving by on the 405-S and saw the tail - quite a bit taller than those of the 747s next to it!! I just had to go see it so I took a quick detour.

WOW!! I must say it looks MUCH better (And MUCH bigger) in person than in photos. I gathered that it looks a little more narrow in person, but the real suprise is how giant the wings are - those things are massive and have a shape I have never seen before - the plane truly looks like a bird.

I absolutely cannot wait to fly on one of these beasts - something about the design and shape of the A380 from the outside suggests that the cabin is an extreamly hotel-like layout with tons of room to explore during a long flight.

Yup, remember it. A guy next to me (looking at the 744) said "The A380 is not that big", and then "oops". I guess it was the excitement. When I was walking by the KTLA van, I remember one of the KTLA guys telling somebody that this one flew from Toulouse.

I only wished it was a bit sunny.

It wasnt an ''official'' visit , it was just testing ,touch and go and cross winds testing ....wasnt it ??? If it had been advertised more I would have gone to see it with many others I expect.


Amazing photos, I didnt know you could get that close to the AC at LAX. Its proberbly the best airport to see the AC in other than TLS.
