Air France pilots look like little green men with the two Thales HUD in dual configuration ;-)

The "First Officer" is actually also a Captain, Patricia HAFFNER, here in the right seat.

Incredible, i heard that ATC transmission when the AF A380 went to JFK for the first time, and i sure heard a female voice coming from that flight deck, so yes, she's either F/O or Capt.

Amazing aircraft! It is so huge! I do not understand the comments about a woman at the control... So what?

Great pic! Don't get me wrong, I'm a bloke but why should it be amazing for the first officer to be a woman? Surely women are just as capable as men of taking the exams?

Why is everyone so surprised to see Ms. Haffner at the controls? Oh my god... A woman in charge of "the beast"? It's because it's unusual. Most pilots today are still men. So go ahead, be surprised--or rather, impressed. I still think the A380 is ugly.

The FO, Patricia Haffner, used to be a captain on the Concorde. I wouldn't mind upgrading to this one!

Patricia HAFFNER is not only captain but also the Air France A380 Instructor. She started to fly in Air France in 1980 on 727 and she told me that the A380 will probaby be his last aircraft. What a beautiful way to end his airliner pilot career! Congratulation Patricia!
