I just ran across this interesting bit of news:



Numerous “firsts” for the aircraft, unique operational challenges, and Airbus’ 40th Anniversary to be discussed


EAA and Airbus will provide reporters a preview of the highly anticipated visit of Airbus’ own A380, a flight-test version of the world’s largest passenger airliner, to this summer’s EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, “The World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration.”

Register for the online news conference today.


- T. Allan McArtor, Airbus Americas chairman
- Terry Lutz, Airbus test pilot and A380 cockpit crewmember
- Tom Poberezny, EAA president and AirVenture chairman


- Friday, July 17, 2009
- NOTE Time Zone Info: 9 a.m. CDT, 10 a.m. EDT, 4 p.m. (France)


Topics to be discussed will include:

- Airbus’ plans for bringing its A380 to Oshkosh and the significance of Airbus’ 40th anniversary celebrations
- The “firsts” for both Airbus and EAA that this aircraft’s visit represents
- Special air- and ground-operation considerations for bringing such a large aircraft to a regional airport
- The innovation and international collaboration required to bring the Airbus A380 project to fruition
- The special linkage among the Airbus A380, the comparatively diminutive RV-8 “homebuilt,” and the even tinier Cri-cri ultralight.

Does anyone know anything about "The special linkage among the Airbus A380, the comparatively diminutive RV-8 “homebuilt,” and the even tinier Cri-cri ultralight"? I can't quite figure that connection out.

Quoting 2H4 (Thread starter):
- The special linkage among the Airbus A380, the comparatively diminutive RV-8 “homebuilt,” and the even tinier Cri-cri ultralight.

It kind of sounds like a photo-op in AeroShell Square, or perhaps even a formation flight. Than That would be a sight to see  Wow!. than again who could see an RV-8 flying when you're next to an A388? If so, I do wonder whose lucky handywork will get to be displayed alongside?

Don't you want to hang out and waste your life with us?
