A380 At Filton

Thu May 18, 2006 10:30 pm

Hi guys

I was lucky enough to see the A380 do a flypast at Filton before heading on to LHR at lunchtime today. Couple of shots I like; what do you guys reckon for getting them on here?

The weather was not kind. I love the overwing vortices on the second shot.

Indeed it wasn't - I got battered by a hailstorm waiting for the bus back just minutes after it left...

Nice to see the A380 pay homage to the spiritual home of the big planes!!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Tom, I like the second one!
Maybe try cropping tightly around the #1 and #3 engines?

No

Although it's obvious that they shouldn't strictly speaking be added, I thought that a.net liked to have a photo on the front page to match the news headlines? I don't know about anywhere else, but along with the Champion's League Final, the A380 is all that's been in the news in the UK over the last 24 hours.

Regards,

Tim.
Obviously missing something....

I understand where you're coming from but if we'd follow the headlines in each country we'd be priority adding shots all the time.

Hi all,

I agree with (Dutch) Tim; there is nothing new about the A380, it may be it's first visit to LHR but that's only news in the UK for the people in SYD, SIN, TLS etc who have seen it before on their patch its nothing new

OK this is about the best I can do with the closeup shot:



What do you guys think? I was battling awful weather and some haze distortion.

Very nice, great effect and striking constrasting colours.

But I think it just lacks the quality required for a.net... I can see some remnants of sharpening or noise reduction now, in the tail area. Also when you look at the top of the a/c, it's not a straight line. Don't think it will work...

True, but how come that we have already shots from the bird at Heathrow and Berlin, while there are still photos left to be screened from 2 weeks ago??

Everywhere the A380 shows up, those images are uploaded straight away, so I guess it is still a priority bird, atleast more then other birds!

ILA 2006 is qualified as an event for priority screening, not only the 380 but all other photos from there.

As for Heathrow, i´ll quote TZ from a different topic:

Human error led to the first LHR A380 image to be added.

Now the policy of no-priority is flawed, so all LHR A380 shots now have priority.

Sorry for confusing everybody. That is a tad embarassing.
