The first visit of the A380 to Logan Airport on what was supposed to be a sunny day. Clouds came to spoil the event, but the landing was textbook and the A380 rolled down runway 33L to North Cargo parking. Aside from proving that Logan can handle the A380, this flight was also a cargo flight, with a special submarine in the cargo hold of the A380. This submarine, manufactured in Boston, will help aid the search for Air France 447's data recorders. Sony Alpha a700, Tamron 70-200 f/2.8.

A nice photo of a nice and very useful event, even though I think there are no scheduled A380 flights into BOS as of autumn 2013... is that correct? But well, it didn't have too many 747's either I think. Upscaling from A330/340/777 to A380 would be strange. I don't understand 1 thing from your caption: "this flight was also a cargo flight, with a special submarine in the cargo hold of the A380. This submarine, manufactured in Boston(..)" does not make sense to me... made in Boston, flown from Boston to Boston? Sounds more logical that the sub was built in France or at least around where the A380 came from, Europe (probably).
