A380 Flight On Wednesday

Mon Apr 25, 2005 5:13 pm

...radio news just reported, that Airbus said the maiden flight is planned for wednesday (if the weather conditions are ok).
I can´t either lock in on the A380 lounge with their provided password nor find any news on that on their website  boggled 

Normaly this radio-station is very reliable and the weather forecast for Toulouse is quite good from tomorrow.
http://www.wetterspiegel.de/de/europa/frankreich/3-60.html
So let´s wait and see if it will happen on wednesday or if it is just another rumor.

The "Prefecture" of Haute-Garonne issued on friday 22nd the offical document including the roads/streets closed or affected by the traffic on the day of the first flight.

Since Airbus said that they needed to inform the authorities at least 48 hrs prior to, I think we are on track for Wednesday then. In parallel, the weather is good.

(They specially made two huge parkings lots for the event, for at least 10000 cars)

French media reports speak about at least 50.000 spectators - the city of Toulouse will broadcast the event live on a giant screen in front of the majors' hall on Toulouse' main square.Monster-traffic jams can be expected in Toulous on wednesday ....it is great to see the "average" french-people taking part in such a massive way in this event.

Reminds me of the last Concorde in Germany at FKB, with 12.000 people watching and huge traffic jams. Or the three Concordes in LHR.

You can subscribe to the airbus -site and obtain access to their live-broadcast via their A380 site- otherwise I am sure french TV will broadcast life as well ( via their respective websites..) as will the second german TV chanel "ZDF".
Skynews should cover the event live in the UK (if not-shame on them - the UK provide substantial parts of the A 380 ..!!)

Great news! Wednesday 27th will be a special day in aviation history.

On the Airbus website they have put up a whole lot of material for the first flight. They've done quite a nice job - obviously a lot of work has been involved. You'll find:

- videos of previous airbus first flights
- videos of preparation of A380 for testing
- lots of photos & articles
- 360 view inside cockpit
& more.

Go to:
http://www.airbus.com/a380/seeing/prehome.asp

The site has only just gone up & I don't think it is accessible from the main website (unless you do a search...  sly  ).

I've checked the website of ZDF.
There is no hint yet on the program section for Wednesday.
Even MDR (Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk) broadcasted during their news this morning, that the A380 first flight will happen on Wednesday, 27th.

The weather is certainly looking excellent for Wednesday - the current MetOffice models are showing a region of High Pressure over the whole of the South of France resulting in most importantly, very little wind.

Hopefully some nice blue skies for those PR photos......  spin

"Mid morning" according to Airbus - so estimate around 1030 and you won't be far wrong.

I don't know if ORF will broadcast. But in Salzburg you get ZDF, or not? Here in Zurich I will watch it on ZDF when no Swiss channel will broadcast.

It will be like 5am on the US East Coast and I am on a week break so I am not getting up that early. I will catch it at like 11:30am(when I wake up) which is like 4pm in TLS, oh well. I don't think I will sleep on Tuesday night, too excited. I love the A380 and Airbus and it is too big of a day.

Can't wait to see her in the air!

I understand that this is marginally off-topic, but for anyone who hasn't had enough of seeing the A380 "almost" make it to the skies, SFDRS, Swiss Television, just had a short spot on the rolling tests. The report itself gives no real news, but the pictures are still fun to watch!

If you are so inclined to tease yourself just a little more before Wednesday, here's the link:

http://real.xobix.ch/ramgen/sfdrs/ts...rm?start=0:14:36.64&end=0:15:46.20

The feed is realPlayer 450kbps, pretty good quality for an internet-feed.

The report is topped off with the good old Airbus animation of the 380 in flight...

Enjoy!

If you have Time-Warner digital cable (and live in New York City), besides CNN you can also try the following channels for live A380 coverage:

channel 103 - News World International (maybe)
channel 133 - CNN International
channel 139 - CNBC World (CNBC Europe morning show which had live
coverage of the A380's intro in Jan.)

CNN international seems to be a better bet. Mainly world news, rather than regular CNN (channel 10) which is focusued almost entirely on the US.
