    Default No fancy gimmicks just an A380

    Hey everyone.
    Here is a short vid if you are into aircraft. It is the A380 that flew into Heathrow today and taken from a vantage point that any TV crew would kill to get.

    That was totally cool - I am not a planespotter but that was ace.

    You work at the airport? What is it with the water at the end?

    It's a salute that we do for Inaugural flights and retiring pilots on their last flight. Just got to remember to stay upwind. I did get a bit jittery as the aircraft was due to turn off at a junction called link 33, at one point I though he had passed it as did the driver, he actually put the truck into reverse just in case.

    Cheers Mark, I must admit it doesn't look the most stable and that one is licensed to carry 873 passengers. 36000 hits now (how many friends have you got??? )

    We get good views, Concorde's last day was a great opportunity but the results were not to great as I all I had was a crappy little handy cam and no tripod, I hadn't really got into filming or editing.

    Singapore Airlines should pay you so they can use 'No fancy gimmicks, just an A380' as a tag line in their advertising.
