Hello together,

I wonder that it has not been posted yet (or I didn't find the thread)

The A380 was a "special guest" at the Hamburg Airport Days this weekend. The big bird arrived yesterday and was scheduled to leave today at 4:45 pm. After 45 minutes the A380 got pushed back to Lufthansa Technik.
Cause is a hydraulic leak at on of the center landing gears.
Rumours say it won't leave until tuesday.

Cya, M.

It's great they're discovering these problems than later.

Didn't the 747 inaugural have to return to the gate? :]

Its the test plane. These things happen, its just that everyone's so nervous about the A380 because of the delays, but there shouldn't be any undue concern just yet, so far its just something minor that the mechanics will fix. Lets hope it stays that way. I don't think Singapore or any other customers need worry.
(Of course, i haven't spent millions on it, nor am i an engineer either. )

Yawn! The WhaleJet is the first airliner to go from 3000psi hydraulics to 5000psi hydraulics. It's not surprising that there are some kinks to work out with the hydraulics. I wouldn't worry about it. France probably has the best hydraulics engineers in the world.

are all these problems just because it is a test plane and was one of the first planes where all the kinks were not worked out?

Just a question. It seems I read two or three years ago that Airbus guarenteed a 99% in service availability at EIS. Does anyone know any more details of that, and what implications are involved if that is not accomplished?

I'm not sure about the inaugural, but the early 747's ate engines like nobody's business...far worse than anything the A380 has done yet.

Hmmm.. This plane has only been having tests and what-not for how long now?

Hydraulics leak. Always have, always will. Anybody surprised by this has never worked with a hydraulic system.

...I think they will be hitting those numbers...... Smile

Besides the wiring imbroglio, ostensibly it seems as if everything is going "according to plan".... thumbsup

The A380 leaved yesterday with five hours delay.

I saw how the firefighters put some binder on the taxiway after the A380 was pushed back.



Pushback to LHT Hangar, sorry bad quality taken from the bus.

1st taxi. Bad O-Ring seal in a flap line. Pinched during assembly.

Great photo - grounded whale and a REAL AIRPLANE

Who cares about the A380 - you got to see a flying Connie !!!!

Unfortunately a much more rare sight.

I agree.

B777Nuess, you post THAT pic without a MENTION of the flying bird in the background. Come on, the A380 may be big, but heck - a CONNIE?



If you cannot do the math, your opinion means squat!

Yes, saw the Connie from outside and also inside, but sadly all sightseeing flights were sold already. Some pics in my profile.

Not that most of them were in the affordable category anyway  Wink . I mean, €50 for a 10-minute heli flight? Thanks, but no thanks.

Tell that to all the folks there, seemed half of them were there solely for the A380.

Yes, I know that... Sad one of only three or four flying examples of an aviation classic there - and everybody wants to see only the new plane.

I count myself one of a very lucky few - from 1972 through 1974 I was stationed with VQ-1 on Guam, and we still had the C-121J and a few EC-121N's. Got to spend a lot of flying hours on them.

Actually i think you have to be a member of the association to fly with them (Swiss rules). I was one of the lucky ones to get on the Sunday sightseeing flight. 1 hour and 20 minutes on a great plane with some great views. What a spectacular weekend. Seeing so many great planes. And not only flying with the Connie, but also flying from Norway and back on a DC3.  cloudnine
