Impressive aircraft...ugly as sin, but impressive nonetheless.
.. and in other A380 news:
British Airways Completes its First A380 Passenger Service - Airports International
British Airways completed its first A380 passenger service this morning (Friday August 2) when, BA902 arrived at Frankfurt having took-off from Heathrow at 07:14.
BA?s first Airbus A380 was delivered to Heathrow on July 4 and has since been involved in an intensive work-up programme, allowing pilots and cabin crew to gain experience on the new type.
After a two-week spell based at Manston Airport, Kent, which ended on July 29, the aircraft has visited Cardiff, Stansted, Gatwick and Shannon.
A second LHR-FRA-LHR rotation is planned for the afternoon.
.. which I saw land around lunchtime. A first for me, then immediately followed by another A380, this one an Emirates.
With regards to separation, it didn't seem like 5 minutes to me.
A thought, I expect the flights had a lot of empty seats and I wonder if anyone got upgraded to First class. (Normaly business & Cattle class only.)
