I saw the Airbus A380!

Airbus A380, originally uploaded by fox2mike.

Okay, so I walked into office and looked out of the board room on Friday and saw an aircraft with a BIG blue tail. I was telling myself that it can't be and got out the camera....and there it was.

The world's largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380.

I couldn't get much with the 70-300, since the plane is a good kilometer and half or more away and I'm shooting through tinted glass, but still, it was awesome seeing this baby parked on the tarmac.

She's here for some tests on the new Terminal 3 and will be departing Singapore in about 10 hours or so. Early morning, so I can't get better snaps.

I'm guessing they would be flying in at least once more, before the first SQ A380 is delivered in October. I'll make sure I catch that one. Thanks to ti22 for some post processing magick ;)
