A380 Just Flew Over!

Mon Mar 26, 2007 9:08 am

Sunday, March 25th, 8:02pm.
The A380 inbound to IAD just passed over my house!
Jr and I were outside with binoculars to watch this historic event!
Sorry, no pictures, too dark out.
We're in York Pa. Inbound European flights to IAD pass almost directly overhead.
Despite the low light, it was a sight to see!

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

Must have been a good sight, glad you both enjoyed it.

Yes, it was pretty exciting. When I first heard that the A380 was coming to IAD, I told Jr we could go see it, being that we are just 2 hours away.
To his disappointment (and mine) it was scheduled to arrive at night, so it was a no go.
I wish it would have been a little earlier though, then we would have had a better view.
But, seeing that we will have very few chances to actually see an A380, we are excited that we got the brief view we did.
