An A380 can land at LPL?? Wow. I know they have major runway length issues with the 747s they get for the footie sometimes. Thats going to be a "sprightly" departure!

By all accounts it's doing a flyby at MAN at around 13:20 then flying on to Liverpool to do a flyby there, presumably 15-20 minutes later . No landing anywhere. Apparently, it's an airbus company aircraft in SQ colours doing a tour of the UK before going to Farnborough for the air show next week.

Currently there is no airbus company aircraft in SQ colours. Typically they use one of their protypes (e.g. in Berlin MSN 004).  scratchchin

When a 747 can a 380 can also land. The 380 needs less r/w lengh than a 747.

Liverpool used to see visits from the AN-124 in connection with 'Operation Christmas Child'. After takeoff, it used to fly out quite low over our house in Ellesmere Port.

The article says it's landing at MAN, I'm guessing they're getting their facts mixed up.

Regardless I shall definitely have to go down to MAN and see it.

Are there going to be two Airbii 380s at Farnborough this year one on static display and one for the flight displays?... and why one in the SQ livery?

They could have sent the new EK-mirates one for publicity instead!

I honestly think that it will just do a flyby at MAN and LPL, can't see it landing, but then again there has been an A380 stopbar made on stand 62 at MAN.

I don't understand. Why can't you see it landing at MAN and LPL? A 380 can land on any r/w where an other widebody like a 747, 777 or 340 can land.

The aircraft will not be landing. The taxiways are not ready for the aircraft. By the end of the year there will be an approved taxiway route for the A380 as well as a new stand ( where the old stand 12 was at the end of Pier B ) and ST62 is the designated remote stand. Plans are underway to convert a Pier C stand to also accept an A380.

Doesn't matter on whether the runway can take it, the taxiways affect things too. And as pointed out MAN does not yet have a taxiway route for the A380 to take. LPL will be even worse for the A380 when it comes to taxiways and apron usage.

Lee, do you happen to know whether the A380 is doing a flypast over one of the runways or will it be across the entire airport site?

I imagine that MAN would quite like to see a testing of it, or is that just a forlorn hope with it being done by computer modelling?

Are they up to scratch on available fire cover (still have memories of a BA 747 intending to divert there after somehow failing 3 times to land at MAN due spurious GPWS warnings over the railway then finding out that LPL would have bring in extra firemen)

If I have read the link correctly, the A380 will overfly the runway at MAN at 13:20 this Saturday 12th July. Is that correct? Is there a second source for confirmation?

I'm pretty sure ATC will bring it on a normal approach on the active runway ( at that time of day single runway ops so 23R/05L) and then fly along the runway centreline at "X" feet. I'm back in work on Friday and I'll ask them what the "X" will be!

I am hesitant to say yes as they could conceivably go along the lines of a 3rd daily flight as the increase in seats on offer is around the same (assuming that they use A330s; any A380 operation will be a high density one but I don't know when EK is likely to receive that variety)

Didn't EK express a desire a while back to eventually use an A380 on DXB-MAN flights?

They did but I think it was around 2009/2010 when they were planning it. With the "slight" delays in deliveries, I'm estimating that we will have to wait at least 2 years on top of that. It will probably be easier to schedule a 3rd service before having a chance to use A380s. The big downside of a 3rd service is that it will have to see A330 replaced by 772 and then that replaced by 773 before we will have A380s appearing on 1 of the schedules; this could take 5 to 7 years for the growth to warrant the A380 being deployed, so it might not be before 2016 at the earliest.
