While I was out for a bike ride with my wife and son, we heard a plane climbing out of MCO, and to my surprise, it was an LH A380? What was the occasion for this? A diversion, or one off???
Sorry if this has been covered already, but I did a search, and didnt find anything.

MIA had weather. That was the only flight though that was sent to us. It arrived around 2:40 pm, went to the west ramp to fuel. Young flight crew. It taxiied out around 4pm. It actually had to back taxi up 18L/36R because the Taxiway J wasn't wide enough to accomodate it where it turns. Several aircraft departed in front of it on 18R while it taxied on 18L. It then departed on 18R and made a quick turn to the south east.

In FLL we got 3 AA 757s and a couple 737s from them also. A KAL Cargo 744F and a North American 767 also diverted, quite a sight to see. The 767 barely used any runway and made a spectacular takeoff. I didn't get to see the 744F leave.
