    Internal & External video of Airbus 380 landing at SFO

    Beautiful video from inside the cockpit, and external video of Lufthansa's maiden flight approach and landing at SFO with their Airbus A380.

    Watch on your big screen, if possible

    A nice large photo of the A 380

    Nice to see that the pilots weren't Sum Ting Wong, Bang Ding Ow, We Tu Lo or Hol Lee Fuk.

    Can it do a water landing all by itself after some geese get sucked in the engines?
    EVH 1979: Well, actually it's not much of a vacation, because we run everything ourselves. We design our own album cover, we have to be in the office every day to sign checks - the whole corporation revolves around us. Nothing can be done without our approval. We even have photo approval.

    Planes dont even have "yolks" anymore? The chance of a passenger or someone with limited flight experience every being able to take control of an aircraft like this in an emergency situation is completely out the window now, may as well be a lunar exploration module.
    That being said, beautiful machine...sometimes when you look at the scope of MANkind's creations and achievements, it is pretty freeaking amazing what we have accomplished.

    It's only Scare... oppps I mean Air-bus that prefers the side stick over the control column. Boeing still uses the tried and true column. Boeing also tends to screw-em together a bit tighter IMHO.

    Beautiful? In the eye of the beholder I guess. To me it looks like an unholy cross between a guppy, beluga whale and an overfilled water balloon. Meh...

    Beautiful in the sense of technology but it does look a bit "hunchy" if that is even a word.

    Well, it is now! I'll agree, aviation technology has sure come a long way, but not always for the best when pushed a little too hard and a little too fast. I'll give Airbus some credit just for having the balls to make the thing and I pray that they always remain shiny side up!
