First EK A380 @ TLS

Thu Jan 19, 2006 5:06 pm

The first A380 for Emirates is sitting on the A380 Apron in TLS.

The plane is while from completion, but has the Emirates colors on the tail. It is sitting next to the first A380 for SIA.

And infront of the EK A380 is F-WWSF with engines.

The Aircraft are:

F-WWSH - EK
F-WWSC or SE or SA - SQ
F-WWSF - Airbus/Etihad

Looks like they have the hydraulics running on the EK aircraft, probably running tests or so. I hope we'll get to see the GP7200 finally hanging on the A380's engines, because the GP's flighttests on the A380 are due to start sometime soon.

It's good to see these giants slowly appearing one by one...
