Luck or planned...it doesn't matter. The two giants gliding down the path behind each other with a seperation of approximately one minute.

Fantastic job catching 3 planes in one pic, who does the 2nd A380 belong to? Or are they both Singapore Airlines?

Seeing the distance I am wondering how close that is to the legal seperation requirement.

But yeah great to see any how, just wish the aircraft was a bit prettier :).

I was at T5 that day. It was quite a sight to see 2 A380s come of the runway one after the other. Great picture.

SQ318 lands in LHR at 7:10PM ... so the second A380 behind must be EK033 from DXB (late, as it is scheduled to land at 6:40PM, or is it SQ that is ahead of schedule ?) In any case, nice shot !

Minimal disruption to traffic with it's extra separation-needs to lighter aircraft behind. Just pack them together! Although probably luck has itäs say also..
Great pic!

Fantastic pic. Makes you feel like your are standing on the threshold. Lucky to get an F28 or 737 down here in Albany Western Australia, just egg beaters. So pics like this are great to see.

This might be a common thing at LHR. I flew in late July with SQ on an A380 (about 5am) and about 1 min behind us was QF A380. (who I'm assuming was the A380 I could see off our port wing in the distance about 2 hours earlier over Poland)
