Another Short A380 Video

Fri Apr 22, 2005 9:20 pm

Go to:

http://videojts.france3.fr/

Select, in the "Editions Régionales" area, the 19/20 Midi-Pyrénées.

And, in the window opened, the "Mercredi 20 Avril" broadcast. The 380 part is just after the introduction of the news.

But all in French, including radio communication between the 380 and the tower.

Nice video. Seeing those workers standing next to it show just how enormous this plane is. I'm truly impressed by the wings, they are truly unique. Can't wait to see it fly.

I have a question. In the video, if you see the engines are not on the same axis. What i mean is that the outboard engines look a bit more angled upward. Any one know why?

I may be wrong, but I think it has something to do with wing flex.

Which one ? Maybe I am missing something interesting ?

Before posting I made a forum search with "video 380", but found only the similar thread linking to the M6 channel video, (different video from this one). Did not see anything related to this France3 channel film.

Was it me or was that a fast acceleration?  Wow! I wonder if it was relatively over-powered, i'm sure a less massy plane can do that...  Smile

As the wing narrows towards the tip, less lift is generated in this area, hence the engines are angled slightly exhaust down to replace some lost lift with directional thrust. This is also in place on the A345/6.

Does anyone have a clear noise file from the engine sound? It must be amazing to hear the A380 thundering down the RWY.

Click on the friday news (vendredi) and watch the video after 2 minutes or so. You will see an animation video of how the A380 will probably take off! VERY NICE!.

Not only that but there's more information on the flight path in that video. Unfortunately, I'm at work and I forgot my headphones today, so I couldn't use the volume so I'm not sure what they said (the mayor of blagnac is interviewed) but I'll check from home (with volume this time) and post a summary here if I have time (unless someone else can beat me to it  cheerful  Wink.

I wonder whether the alleged rotation pic that was making it's round on A.net a few days ago was actually from this simulation video.

Glidepath73:

Based on the engines, I doubt that the A380 will thunder at all. A big whoosh with a hint of RR growl will probably be more like it. After all, noise reduction is one of the goals of modern aircraft & engine design.

Too bad too, because you almost expect something quite dramatic from such a large airframe. I fear that it will be highly anticlimactic.

In the M6 video from last week, it was evident that there wasn't too much of a roar, more a really meaty buzz. It really sounds like a 777, I thought.

You heard it in the above video: "Preparations for a possible flight next Tuesday" Exciting stuff.

Meister808 -
The anchorman never announced a flight for Tuesday. He simply said the flight is loosely scheduled for next week. He kept re-iterating that he could not tell his audience when exactly the flight was going to be. He did, however, mention that the ground tests required before the first flight are 100% complete. I find it ironic that the A380 is using runway 38L for its tests. This is because (and the anchorman said it too) this runway was designed specially for Concorde's testing. Two engineering marvels of aviation, using one common runway to prove their airworthiness. Kind of ironic to me. Hopefully the anchorman (which in Europe are pretty reliable) is correct about a flight next week. We'll see!

doesn't sound like a 777 at all (please don't insult the 777's, the thrust of EACH 777's engines blow away EACH of the A380's engine)

38L, I don't think that is possible, unless they number their runways in a funny way.

They were mentioning May, 8th on Discovery-NL as well; I guess it will be the 8th everywhere in Europe...

Sorry, 32L...my bad. 38 is the row number of my flight 2 nights ago, that's why I got the two mixed up.

Considering some T7s are RR Trent equipped, it would be a reasonable comment to say that it sounds like a 777. It all depends which engine variant of the 777 you are talking about.

The 777 wouldn't be allowed to fly if it was fitted with the trent engines from the A380 as, like you say they are not in the same league, power output wise. Twins have to be hugely overpowered in case they lose an engine on takeoff.

I also agree that you shouldn't compare the A380 to the 777. It just not a fair comparison, the A380 sounds a million times better. Big grin
