A380 Airbus off the ground

 article about A380 Airbus off the ground


Success!  That is the word for the maiden flight of the world's biggest plane - the Airbus A380.

The four hour maiden flight went without a hitch and touched down near Toulouse in southern France.  The plane, designed to carry 555 passengers, but which can accommodate more than 800, will now commence 2500 hours of test flights before it enters service in the second have of 2006.

The double-decker plane carried a six man test crew and landed amid the cheers of thousands of enthusiatic spectators lining the perimeter fence.
