Quite unbelievable of what I saw and photographed but what an awesome sight and thrill seeing the next Queen of the skies rotate right under you and later fly level with you. What an early rotation performance that was!!! Year 2005 is definitely the A380 year in aviation history! Those memories of her visit to Sydney will go down well in my books. [Nikon D2x]

If she will have a special livery like the "Wunala Dreaming" and the "Yannani Dreaming", she will be the perfect plane. :)
