Damnit,

Going to be in the US. D'oh and had just started a new job last time she came so I couldnt get down there. Oh well count down is on until we can actually fly on the thing.

Wonder if they will dress it up in the QF colours again.

Not sure if she will receive the Qantas colours this time... The aircraft is in Sydney for 2 days... Hopefully I'll take some snap shots of the cockpit this time!

Maybe its will also do the CASA route proving and for some circuits to get the 380 onto the QF AOC, apparently routing via TPE.

I have this funny feeling all the problems and endless unneccesary criticism of the A380 will be gone once this baby goes into commerical service.

It is such an amazing looking aircraft.

the 787 will be the same but the A380 will steal the publicity thunder the 787 has enjoyed for a while  stirthepot   duck

Great to hear the A380 is coming back to Aus.

If only it would come down to MEL aswell.
