Superb video and very nice backing music. It really does show off the impressive wings on the beast.


Next Flight: BOS-SFO (B6), OAK-KOA (AK), KOA-OGG (YV), OGG-HNL (HA), HNL-ATL-BOS (DL)

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.

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!

Great video indeed, and good AF music too.

Nice to see they cleaned it for the shooting...

Wow - lovely video and actually the very first time I've looked at the A380 and thought it looked beautiful! Always thought it was a fairly clumsy chap...until now!

Thanks for sharing this.

Incredible. I cannot believe how much more dynamic the A380 looks in flight.


Am I cured? Slept 5 hours on last long-haul flight...

WOW! A clean Air France, we don't see that too often    

Haha, but joking aside, I do really feel the A380 looks aesthetic when the undercarriage is inside of the belly!  



Not drinking, also isn't a solution!

LOL -- that was my first thought, too, given the *ahem* less-than-spic-and-span AF jets we've seen on a.net in the past.

Hey I missed the part where the Air France A380 hit the CR jet at JFK.  
Okay, Okay I'm only joking. The video is very well done and I think the music really adds to it. Thanks for sharing it.

Beautiful video, certainly makes the A380 grow on ya.

Also I was glad to see no CRJs were hurt in the making of this video

You're all welcome. Yes the A380 actually looks quite good in the air.

I was thinking about making this joke when starting the thread myself, but I guess it could be seen as flamebait 

Anyway, it's nice to see a clean AF380

Awesome video. The music makes it even more fascinating to watch. I could watch this for hours. My new lullaby video. :P

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.

What's the music called? It really matched the plane's elegance. AF has the best looking livery of them all.

It's called "World can be yours" by a French group called Telepopmusik. AF has been using it in their advertising since 2009.

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?
