    Delivery will happen next month. The picture is of the cabin first flight at Hamburg dated 19 August 2008.

    The aircraft took off yesterday after a delivery ceremony at Airbus’ Toulouse factory and will fly via Singapore to Sydney, where it will land on 21 September.

    I knew the A380 has long endurance, but it can stay aloft for an entire month?

    The title is a bit premature – this is just a test flight from Hamburg-Finkenwerder. QANTAS will not take delivery for another month – September 19th.
