It took some days since the inaugural Emirates A380 Dubai-Amsterdam EK 147 flight on 1st August 2012 before the approach route and the weather were right to get the A380 in front of my lens while sitting on the patio of my home. But today was the day. Suddenly Emirates A380-861 c/n 080 A6-EDQ appeared from the clouds at 3200 ft, with a speed of 220 kts on its way to Schiphol Amsterdam airport in The Netherlands (EHAM). I could take this picture just before it was wrapped up by the next cloud, hence the shreds of cloud in front of the aircraft. A few seconds later it reappeared in bright sunlight. The next photo I could take of this A380 will be posted to this gallery soon, so check this EnoAeroPics gallery regularly.The aircraft was delivered to Emirates on 28 October 2011.
