Back To The Futur : From Electra To A380 (vid)

Sun May 14, 2006 3:28 am

Hi a.netters !

This is a video I have just taken this afternoon. You can see the Lockheed Electra flying, then at the end you see the A380 in the background.

This was for a show and the A380 made a demo very much closer of course, but the Lockheed was ending his demo so it was the only way to have both on the same litle video...

here it is

Maybe I'll upload the A380's demo here too...
Some times my English is purely fonatiks...

Thanks for the post, it really does show how far aviation has gone in the past 70 years. Another amazing fact is that on May 22nd, 1906 (only 100 years ago) the Wright Brothers were awarded patent #821393 for their invention of the airplane.

Yep, backwards. That Electra is probably much more comfortable to travel in than any coach class seat will be in a A380.
