Well, seeing as the old one A380/Green Man Meet 18th May (by Steve7E7 May 1 2006 in Non Aviation) was getting pretty long, heres a new thread  

Where do I start, except for the quote of "Whoosh!!!!" as the A380 came in   

What a sight 

I'll post my pics in a few mins

Did anyone see me with my turquoise AEROFLOT bag? I was in the southeast corner of Myrtle Avenue field with some older guys I know as regulars like me.

With all those people at Myrtle Avenue, I could not pick out anyone I recognized as any A.netter I have met before.

But still, I got a great photo of the A380!

I ended up watching from stand 314 next to KaddyUK (whom i didn't actually notice until we were going back to do some work). I had a fantastic view straight down the runway and approach until about 5 mins before some **nt came anc parked a pushback tug infront of me. Not only that, they had the cab raised up too  Angry - the **nts could have parked behind me and still seen over the top of the tiny car I was in !!.

Got some great footage on the camcorder and a couple of A.net quality shots of the taxiway's concrete due to the lack of viewfinder on my shitty still camera !!!.

Spent an hour and a half with her this arvo tho watching the trials (and tribulations of 6 blokes trying to heave the forward cargo door shut - not a hope in hell's chance !!)

Got more pics and footage from that too.

The Upper Deck Catering truck is some piece of kit !!.
