Exlusive Pictures Of Emirates' A380 Escort By PDF

Thu Dec 01, 2005 9:14 am

He is Belgian ánd he is leading the Emirates-Airbus A380 integration program: captain Patrick De Roeck was the very first commercial pilot to fly the Airbus A380 for Emirates Airlines on the Dubai Air Show, escorted by the 'Patrouille De France'. Have a look at the images here: http://www.luchtzak.be/article10645.html

Man if those escorts must be far enough from the wake vortex of the A380, otherwise we would be able to see the interaction with the streams leaving those jets.

Great pics! Thanks for sharing. W(w)ow, the more pics of the A380 I see, the more beautiful it gets. In the first picture there, are they flying over "The Palm", the artificial luxury islands they're building in Dubai for the rich people?

That's what I thought or perhaps in the end, the whole wake-vortex "controversy" has been blown out of proportion, especially here on a.net.
Recall the small corvette chase plane photographing the A380? It certainly wasn't far and wasn't affected by the wake vortices.

There is no wake vortex controversy....for pete's sake. It's the wake turbulence that is the current issue.


From Mirriamwebster.com:

[Main Entry: vor·tex
Pronunciation: 'vor-"teks
Function: noun
1 a : a mass of fluid (as a liquid) with a whirling or circular motion that tends to form a cavity or vacuum in the center of the circle and to draw toward this cavity or vacuum bodies subject to its action; especially : WHIRLPOOL, EDDY b : a region within a body of fluid in which the fluid elements have an angular velocity
2 : something that resembles a whirlpool


Main Entry: tur·bu·lence
Pronunciation: 't&r-by&-l&n(t)s
Function: noun
: the quality or state of being turbulent : as a : wild commotion b : irregular atmospheric motion especially when characterized by up-and-down currents c : departure in a fluid from a smooth flow




Air caught in a vortex is still considered smooth flow, as all air parcels within it share very similar angular velocities.

I can't see anything other than a magnificent, beautiful aircraft (the A380....) in those pictures. MAJESTIC.  Smile

When I see those pictures taken from above the plane, I think about how big that wing is  Smile it almost looks like those fighters could land on the wings during flight hehe

you've apparently never been in a cessna taking off behind a A320. There is definately some turbulance behind a larger plane. I've gotten caught in vortexi being 737s and DC10s in flight as well. Flying around SFO airspace, you run into that.

There are also some pics of the A330 on the Airbus webpage flying with the Red Hawks. Great combination IMO!  Wink

It was also traveling a good distance above the A380, i.e. out of the line of fire.

Wake vortices travel outward and downward.

Don't forget that alongside the aircraft there isn't much vortex wake. If that aircraft were to fly about half a mile behind the A380, it would encounter the wake. Typically, the wake follows the aircraft about 20-30 seconds after the aircraft passes, to give you some idea of the distance.

Stand at the end of an airport runway on a calm day and wait for the wake to hit you - a very surreal experience with an eery wind!

Looks to me like the Alphas are flying just abreast where the vortexes would form. Little to no danger from their position.

what i find amazing is that the alpha jet nearly fits on the wing surface, nose to tail, at the wing root.

that is simply MASSIVE...

what a beautiful aircraft! I am ALWAYS impressed to see the B747 parked by a B737/A31X/A32X to see just how BIG the 747 is, cant wait to see the A380 next to a B737/A31X/A32X/B777/A33X or even the queen of skies B747!

I am sure it will be just as amazing!
