The aircraft is handed over to qantas today (19 of september) and will arive in sydney on the 21st of september. It will probebly be flying from the factory to Singapore then on to sydney. My RB will be up and running for the arrival:-)
I believe the aircraft will be delivered in Hamburg, or were ever the A380 is delivered

If it was a Concorde, I could understand the anticipation and excitement - it's only a double decker after all.     Now, if the pilot did the flypast under the bridge ....................!         Does anyone else remember the Airbus slow pass that did a bit of hedge trimming...................?
(Tongue very firmly in cheek, although Brian Trubshaw allegedly barrel-rolled 002, and told his co-pilot to unwind it!)
