Is A380 Coming To LHR Feb. 13?

Fri Jan 13, 2006 3:43 am

I read on another thread (non-av) about an LHR meet Feb. 13--and in it was something about the A380 coming to LHR that day. That was the first I heard about it!

So, it's true, is it? Unfortunately Feb. 13 is a Monday (I have anatomy lecture all morning and dissection all afternoon), so I woudn't be able to make it then. (I attend King's College London).

If it's true the A380 is visiting LHR the 13th of February, how long would it stay there? I would love to see it, but would not want to miss class, either!

Please let me know if this is true, and how long it would stay at LHR. Thanks!

I made the thread. JamieD told me, and I asked kaddyuk who works as an engineer for VS. He says it is indeed true (although he wasn't completely sure if it was the 13th... but he thinks so), but I'll let him make a post if he wants to say something  Wink

One can ask why Airbus has kept this "secret" though. I am completely lost, but I'll definitely be going up there.

I'm guessing it'd be there late morning/early afternoon.

I'm at Studying at Imperial College, doing Aeronautical Engineering, and here's hoping that it's on Monday afternoon, as i'm all done with lectures by 12...

And oh yes, we're living in West Kensington, with our roof garden perfectly placed to watch it come in, with a beer and the radio, perfect  Smile

Here's hoping it is coming in on Monday anyway...

I think you'll be disappointed; on the other thread it was stated the A380 is not visiting LHR on thr 13th.
