They had a special ceremony for this a/c once it arrived in Atlanta, and here's some photos from the event (I guess we'll see a similar type ceremony when the first A380 flight hits town.):

It probably was, given the fact that it dusted this past Thursday.

HAHA, yeah that would be pretty counter productive to give it a water canon salute, only to have to spend the next 30 minutes de-icing the plane of it's frozen water!

Glad to see another 8F in the skies non the less!

Originally the routing ex HKG would have seen the service passing through DEL, this is now not happening with this aircraft.

Here is a video I took when the whale was parked at South Cargo in Atlanta. I was getting in position to get a good shot but airport police came along...so unforunately, the clip is nothing spectacular. But you do get to see the nose cargo door open...

Sometimes "dates" say more than "week days", which repeat every seven days...
