Monster A380 emerging from the clouds

Airbus A380 Emerged from Clouds

While I was in London we visited Hyde Park and there was an approach to Heathrow on the far side of the park, running parallel to the direction in which I was walking. I spotted an A380 in the distance and saw it was going to have to pass through a series of clouds. My aim was to capture the amazing Airbus Super Jumbo as it emerged from the clouds. The last time I saw one as close was when I attended Flightiest Dublin a few years ago. (click linked text to see the gallery for Flightfest)

Below are the shots of the A380 emerging from the clouds. Shots taken with the Canon 75-300mm f/4.0.

The A380 is a real monster of an aircraft, a double-deck, wide-body, and four-engines. It is the world’s largest commercial passenger aircraft and unlike the 747 which has 2 decks, the A380s upper deck extends along the entire length of the fuselage. It is also 50% quieter on take off than the 747. British Airways has 12 A380s in the fleet.
