Very good subject, nice setting and perfect angle. On the down side, the photograph is a bit grainy which may be due to the lighting.

When I first looked at it I thought it was a fire and I was like "When did this happen???" Then I looked more closely and figured it out, nice shot.

My first reaction was: "Where is the forum thread about first hull loss of A380"? I hope this is as close as getting to a hull loss in ship's career. Brilliant shot.

Fantastic shot! The red mist from the de-icing fluid, the reddish yellow line on which the nose gear is parked, the man standing with headset connected to the headset.

There's something delightfully logical about using flame throwers to de-ice a plane:)

This photo is excellent for what it is not. It's not a plane on fire but the red glow and smoke action and silhouette completely fools the viewer!

A 747 has it's flight deck on the second level, an a380's flight deck is on the first level, as you can see in this picture the flight deck is on the second level

Mate, The A380 flight deck is BETWEEN the 2 passenger levels, check the curvature of the wings, the massive engines and the wing fences . . . Hello!!!

Great shot. I also thought it was on fire the first time I saw it! Btw look at the winglet. Above and below the wing so it is clearly an A380.

Stunning photo of the Bus. This is clearly not a 747 of course, which is not egg-shaped out front, it has the distinctive "flat" sides angled toward top-center.

Awesome picture, for the one who says its a 747 i wont talk about the shape of the aircraft which is so clear that its a 380 but just look at the logo on the engines and you'll know its an Emirates Airlines and Emirates doesn't have 747s :)

LOL How can anyone mistaken an A380 for a 747??? I mean seriously, thats like looking at it and saying,"wings, 4 engines, and it's big. must be one of those big planes called the 747 or something". I mean come on! Look at the shape! Plus wingtip fences. Sigh.

Great pic, thought this aircraft was on fire. This is 100% an A380 Emirates do not fly a 747 of any kind. Only in their cargo division.

5 stars for the catch, angle and lack of a fish eye.

When I saw this photo, I thought it was QF 32 back at the airport...

But seriously... this is photo should be a warning to Boeing :)
