What a shot! I'd have given my right arm, to have been standing with that group of people, at the end of the strip to see the A380 up this close and personal.

250 feet is approximately the wingspan of an A380. It certainly looks a lot closer to the ground than a distance equal to its wingspan. I reckon it was low enough for the spotters to read the maker's brand on the tyres. Sometimes it's a bugger that Oz is so far away!

I can't wait to fly this beauty! I'm a Qantas First Officer and it will be a very special day for me, when I step into the cockpit.

Wow amazing picture! That runway is WAYYYY too small for this behemoth however. Good thing it didn't try landing.
