A380 at Asian Aerospace

A couple of weeks ago (is it that long already?) I was lucky enough to visit Asian Aerospace in Singapore. The feature attraction being the Airbus A380, which is due to go into commercial service starting with Singapore Airlines later this year.

Up close the aircraft is huge. Despite this, the nearly empty A380 flew some amazing maneouvres and seemed to be much quieter than other large aircraft. Certainly much quieter than the military aircraft on flying display immediately beforehand!

Here are some nice photos by RtOaNn.
