A-380 in Singapore Posted by Picasa

The much awaited Airbus A-380 was in Singapore today. Singapore was the first city outside Europe to welcome the new Airbus A380, the world’s first fully double-decker aircraft, when it arrived at Singapore Changi Airport today.

As part of the A380 flight test campaign, the aircraft was tested for its long-range flight capability in its non-stop journey to Singapore.A close friend of mine who got to see it from the Public viewing gallery at the Changi Airport commented , " The sheer size of it was an amazing sight . It almost resembled a five storeyed apartment building that flies but the flight doesn't look stylish enough " .


  • Yeah, I heard about it...!! Must be an amazing sight to watch..!!

    I hope they come up with faster flights..for people like us who live in the US.

    I am dreaming about a 6 hour non-stop to Chennai???

  • A380 is definitely bigger but not sure if its faster. Perhaps by virtue of being non-stop one might save a lot of time.
