A380 Coming To LHR

Fri Feb 24, 2006 1:42 am

Looks like the A380 is coming to Heathrow on 29 April. Anyone know which A/C? Maybe they will paint it in Virgin colours!!!

Its unlikely to arrive in Virgin colours as I expect it is only here for a 'flying visit' to test new T5 airbridges etc.

Probably not... When it came to FRA it wasn't in LH colors. It was only put in EK and SQ colors for those countries airshows...

Maybe at the Farnborough airshow? But Airbus did not do that for AF at the Paris show maybe that was too soon after the first flight?

The weekend of 29/30th April happens to be a few days after my 31st birthday (25 April)! It would be my best birthday present--to see the long-awaited A380!

I don't know what activities are planned for the A380 arrival into LHR, or what the Visitors Centre is doing for this.

However, there is a big A.net meet planned for that weekend! (A thread in non-av is discussing the meetup, if you're interested).

Whatever happens, I at least plan to be under the approach path with my camera to capture it!

I was watching BBC London news and there was a peice on the A380 coming to LHR but I missed any details.
It's still two months away so there may be changes to times and dates.

For future reference, you can watch the last bulletin of BBC London News for a few hours after it is broadcast online at www.bbc.co.uk/london

I have to say I'm quite looking forward to the A380 coming to LHR. If it comes in over London, I'll have the perfect view of its approach here in Richmond!
