A technically perfect snap... i think the livery needs something subtle to it, like a feint air france water mark... eh... still looks purteh

I like the livery. Simple, clean, without bells and whistles (like Lufthansa's design). Good job!

Great to see this momentous occasion, first Transatlantic A380 too. Just a pity Air France are using the Engine Alliance and not the Rolls Royce Trent engines in my opinion.
