My brother goes to something called "piano club" (ie. amateur classical musicians playing music to each other) with someone who works for Airbus there. She told him she was working on the fuel system tests or calibration or something like that when the A380 was there few months ago.
Apologies if it's pointless info. but thought it might be cool because it's from the grapevine (!)
Drove past last night and being stuck in traffic was made up for by the special treat of a Beluga with it's "mouth" open Concorde in the distance and an A380 hiding between two buildings - anyone any idea what time it might be flying today - there is very heavy rain here in Bristol so that might mess up plans!
I went down to take a look only to see from Aztec West the A380 on about a 6 or 7 mile base. I tried to beat it through the rush hour traffic but it was no good, managed to see it disappear behind the royal mail building as I got to the royal mail building. It was so low though it would have been incredible to have witnessed it...
