Biggest airliner landing in Montreal
« on: November 08, 2007, 12:32:45 AM »
On Monday November 12, the biggest airliner in the world, the Airbus A380, will land in Montreal, at Pierre-Elliott-Trudeau airport. The plane is from Singapore Airlines.

Here is a link: http://www.marketwire.com/mw/release.do?id=780804&k=.
You have to know that the link is in French (I didn't found any link in English)
It's time to dive in the fireworks!

True. You know you're one of the few people who'd actually admit that Singaporeans got there ahead of everyone else? ;D jk It looked kinda weird when it landed. Like a big baseball bat or something...

The A380 will land in the afternoon, today. It is sad I can't go see it land (I have school).  :-[  :-[ I wonder if anybody can photograph it.

Finally the A380 wasnt from Singapore Airlines (sorry Raptor  :( ). The plane took of from France and landed in Montreal at 12:21, this November 12.
Here is a video:  http://argent.canoe.com/lca/infos/quebec/archives/2007/11/20071112-165308.html. It is in French but we can see the Airbus land. I am glad it landed in Montreal. But I think it is the one of the only times it will land in Montreal
because Air France won't use it for the Montreal-Paris flights.

First A380 flight was to Sydney. By SIA. I don't mind, Flanker. We still got ahead of all of you. ;D

Cool video, dude.

Who's that Russian guy who's replacing his personal 737? Dude, i could LIVE in a 737, not to mention an A380.

Those are military-specific, not for luxury cruises
