  • Sad news about the Airbus A380 today

    Hoping against hope, production of my favourite airliner will cease. The A380 is big, beautiful (in my eyes) and super comfortable - well, and just plain impressive.

    While passengers like me loved it, the airlines - apart from Emirates - never fell in love with it, sadly.



    An outing for the E-5 and 90-250 when invited to tour the as-then, unfinished, Heathrow terminal 2, in 2013. This was taken from the press gallery

    And this clip sends shivers up my spine



    At least these friendly beasts will still be flying for another couple of decades.

    I see the enormous ocean liners & I think that if anything goes wrong then many lives could be at risk & I feel a bit the same for such large aircraft too.

      I can understand that, Ross, but the statistics do suggest flying is actually very safe.
