22 all-Indian crew with Captain Ramesh Krishna from Hyderabad & First Officer Irfan Rizvi from Mumbai bring in the Inaugural Etihad A380 to the Home of VJ on Maharashtra Day. The a/c is seen here seconds from touchdown on rwy 27 at 6:39pm in beautiful dusk lighting. The water canon salute was refused by Etihad in light of a severe drought in the state. While most spotters will relish the A380, I will greatly miss my beloved A340s as EY regularly operated their A343, A345 & A346s here :-(

Finally we see the VJ inaugural landing shot. Fabulous picture Vishal, saw it on your site but it looks so much better here on Anet in the higher resolution and your trademark beautiful remarks telling the story........

Hell of a shot Vishal! Sorry about your favorite A340s but u never know they may just operate the odd flight here or there on days with lesser loads. Keep the pictures coming
