A380: Videos/Pics Of First Three Flights? Where?

Sun May 08, 2005 5:03 am

I wonder if somebody knows where to find videos of the first flights of the A380. Especially number 2 & 3.

Good/rare photos are also interesting to me.

I assume you've looked at airbus.com? They have the first flight, I don't know about the second and third. Also try www.flightlevel350.com for other videos.

All of the halfway decent photos are probably on this site and airbus.com

Just go to the Airbus site airbus.com. On the frontpage click on Enter and choose VIDÈOS to the left.
You need Flash Player from Macromedia to view the videos.

Next to that some news sites will certainly have videos of the maiden flight.

Yeah they have really good pictures and video's on the official airbus website, including videos from in flight and of the gear retraction.

Thanks, I was more looking for personal stuff.

I have a lot of complaints about Airbus' movies. They are ridiculously small. You cannot download them or go directly to one place in the movie.

Besides they always change angle during take-off or landing which I don't like. They even shot the first landing from above whereas what one wants to see is wheels touching the ground!

So my question is: besides official or tv feed?

You are right about the quality, except partly on the downloading. If you know how to search in the browser cache for files with the extension ".swf", you will find them just copy them to another directory.

Instead try to go to A340.net, chose "Multimedia", "Video Library", "Other Exterior - Airbus" - now you can download a 5,6 Mb movie from the April the 27th. It is more personal and a better quality than the Airbus videos.
Try this link too: A380
This page has a video (same video in 2 formats) on the moving of the fuselage parts.

On this page you can see the A380 fly inside a building - very personal and with an incredible manoeuvrability.
