It really is incredible. So magnificent from certain angles, especially nose on and from the top, and then that side view that just begs for an extension. She sure does grow on you though. One of these days man, I will get on that plane from SFO to Europe. Cannot wait.

Quoting wingman (Reply 4): and then that side view that just begs for an extension
So true. I already said before that the A380 is a must see in the sky. On the ground her beauty does not show. She probably is the aircraft which looks "change" for the better the most when she is airborne. .

Thanks for sharing this phenomenal video! It would be a dream job to be able to film one of these airborne beauties from a chase plane. Though they are impressive on the ground, planes are especially graceful and elegant in the air--much like swans in water versus land.
I love the smell of fresh jet blast in the morning! In the afternoon and in the evening, too!

Quoting aerdingus (Reply 14): Also I was glad to see no CRJs were hurt in the making of this video
Right now I'm amazed that our comments about the A-380 clipping a CRJ have not been removed by the forum moderator for breaking one or more rules! All right! Freedom of speech might just have a chance here again.
Nope, clearly not, both my posts have been removed. Some people here are clearly over sensitive. I said it as a cheek comment, but if FACTS is what people want, here goes: Planes occasionally crash, it's a sad hard fact people, but it happens.
Air France crashed or destroyed numerous planes in the last 30 years, including, in the Airbus fleet alone:
A320 (2), A340 (2), A330 (1), Concorde (1)
I love Air France, being French and all. But Air France is often regarded as poor when it comes to safety of airlines in the western world. Will the AF A380 follow the trend? I sure hope not.
But I maintain my first comment, great video and great music. Now, I've got chill pills in the draw... anyone interested?
