The majestic and almost silent A380 demonstrator is seen here during its display at the Farnborough Air Show. Note the vortices generated by the vanes on the upper engine cowlings.

I was astonished by it's size, as it landed in DUS. But I was disapointed, that it is so quiet. It's just not right, that such a vast plane is so silent.
Nonetheless a great shot. 5*

The A380 in question isn't actually fitted out, it's one that is used in ongoing testing. Maybe at Farnborough F-WWDD was happy to have a break.
Out of curiousity, how are they cleaned externally?
I didn't think the not completely clean look detracted from an excellent display of handling and this is a great capture of what for such a huge machine were some tight turns. I can only hope I have some that are half as good with my inexpensive camera against the blue sky back drop of Sunday at Farnborough.
