Airbus A380

Fernando Alonso, chief flight test engineer and vice president flight test division, said the A380’s take-off weight for the first flight, at 421 tonnes, was the greatest take-off weight of any aircraft in the world. Rest of the stuff is at the A380 website. The A380 completed its maiden test flight quite successfully at Toulouse in France. Woooooot!!!!

Now that's a massive plane. Maybe massive is an understatement. How bout humongous?

Yesterday's AC Milan Vs PSV Eindhoven UEFA Champions League match was neat. Shevchenko is awesome. I'm rooting for AC Milan this time....I think its all setup for an awesome AC Milan Vs Chelsea final in Istanbul.

Fernando Alonso,
At first I thought our F1 driver had taken time off to congratulate the first flight;-)

Yes yes! :) I love Aibus these days lol

Didn't know she had 22 wheels, but I guess she needs that many as she's one fattie :D

I have this up on my journal, but backdated to avoid that large photo cluttering friends pages. Excellant view of the undercarriage here.

For a fattie she has just 4 more wheels than the other old fatty 747.
