Pure Inspiration, to think man kind created such a machine. I still remember when the mock-up was shown on TV some years ago...this is a moment i waited so long for. A puff of smoke and 560,000KG of advanced engineering lands .WOWW! My favourite and most ejoyable shot to date. Dedicated to J.Carden.

"True Spirit of mankind! Great job! Whats that on the left engine?".....
That is a vortex flowing from the aerodynamic fins on the inboard engine cowling of each engine. They look nearly as impressive as the 380 itself. Was a moment i waited many years to see and im glad i could bring this close up to you. Many thanks for the kind words,

Regards Rhys

Majestic! :-) And that "thing" near the left engine, and by the way, also near the right engine (to answer to the Iranian viewer back there) look like vortexes :)

Lots of cold blood needed in order not to shoot before the right moment.

Awesome picture, Very impressive! Just think about what's happening here for a moment...
Actually, to me, this does not look at all like symmetrical to me. Look at the alt. difference of the far left gear and the right gear. If that doesn’t work for you, then check out the distance elevation difference of the left engine vs. right engine. Nothing against the pilot; its mother nature’s wind.

How did you know when to take it just right; I mean the rear landing gear is 50/50. You are the man.

THE COMPOSITION IS BEAUTIFUL.
THE A380 IS AN UGLY BIRD.

I agree with the latest comment.

The image was very well captured, but this photo also shows how ugly the aircraft is.

I know that the A380 is a state-of-art-plane and a great engineering achievement, however, I do not think it is a beautiful plane...it looks a bit akward...

I was in Brisbane Australia when this beauty flew on Finals in and take off out of Brisbane. It may not be the best looking plane but it is certainly the most magnificent to watch in the sky. The shear size and sound of this plane is what makes it beautiful. Thanks Rhys for bringing back the memories of this plane in such detail.

The way this photo has been taken i think its taken quite an effort amount to get a closer and steady shot to be able to make it look proffessional and detailed.
