Has it ever occurred to you that maybe these kids who are part of the show don't give a sh*t about aviation? Pretty sad, ain't it?

All right, at the "moment supreme" I layed in the chair of my dentist. Just returned at my work, did not see a thing yet. Can somebody post a picture of the new A380 livery?

Been watching it on the French webcast. It really does look like a pared down Cirque du Soleil show.

Can't wait to see this thing roll out.

Macc,

I switched from ZDF to the French channel mentioned above. There you get the live voices without much brabbling. Is your French good enough? Then try the link posted above. Also, you can get a full screen image, not this little "Daumenkino" from ZDF.

Bloody crap. I haven't got all day here. If they're not going to do anything more than this, why couldnt they wait for the first flight and have all this in the same ceremony? This now just seems hugely overrated in my eyes, the plane is shown for 30secs in a blue light after a endless dancing show.

Just think, in 30 years or so, these things will start showing up at Mojave, and soon after that, you'll be drinking Coke out of one.

According to a spanish newspaper, all four chiefs of state of the Airbus countries are going to give speeches, so this will probably last for a while.

Indeed much stupid babbling all around on ZDF, but still, at least one pilot (fleet captain longhaul, LH).

Still, a nice show...and the music was partially American (soundtrack of "Abyss"), very touching!

Guys...there are tons of pics of the A380...what do you expect to see????

And it is nice in that blue light...

You could see "A380" running horizontally across the bottom of the tail...no color detail though cause of that blue lighting...
