A380 At LHR & LGW For Proving Flights: When?

Thu Oct 20, 2005 7:28 pm

A few weeks ago, while spotting at LHR, another spotter told me that the A380 is coming to both LHR and LGW for proving flights sometime late October/early November this year.

I'd like to know if this is true, and if so, when is the A380 expected to come here to London for proving runs this year? I'd very much like to see it, without having to wait 2 years from now to see it.

Please let me know more.
Thanks!

Maybe wishful thinking. AFAIK an A380 is doing the far east tour then going to Frankfurt to try out being a real airliner. Never read anything about an A380 doing that at LHR/LGW.
