Singapore Airlines A380, 9V-SKA


Singapore Airlines A380, 9V-SKA, originally uploaded by fox2mike.

So I was part of history today :p

There were lots of people waiting in the Changi Beach Park to watch the landing of the first SQ Airbus A380 plane (regn. 9V-SKA) at the Changi Airport.

While the light was fading, this mammoth of a plane glided in smoothly for a safe touchdown on runway 20R.

Was able to get a few more shots, but I sort of liked this the most. Will post the rest later.

Yeah. This will fly as SQ380 on Oct 25 to Sydney and returns on the 26. That's the charity flight.

From the 28th, it's flying regularly to Sydney.

The next A380 they get (1Q 2008), is scheduled to hit London.

Nice quote

By the middle 1880's, practically all the roads except those in
the South, were of the present standard gauge. The southern roads were
still five feet between rails.
It was decided to change the gauge of all southern roads to standard,
in one day. This remarkable piece of work was carried out on a Sunday in May
of 1886. For weeks beforehand, shops had been busy pressing wheels in on the
axles to the new and narrower gauge, to have a supply of rolling stock which
could run on the new track as soon as it was ready. Finally, on the day set,
great numbers of gangs of track layers went to work at dawn. Everywhere one
rail was loosened, moved in three and one-half inches, and spiked down in its
new position. By dark, trains from anywhere in the United States could operate
over the tracks in the South, and a free interchange of freight cars everywhere
was possible.
-- Robert Henry, "Trains", 1957
