SIA A380 first flight: Getting the “sexy” picture

Sexy pictures are the aim of the day today in the Flight office, but not in the sense that you’d think.

Forget images of sexy flight attendants and uniforms for a second, we are talking about the first flight of the A380.

“The A380 I here you say”! Yes I admit, the sight of the hulking great machine isn’t titillating in any way (unless you like that sort of thing). We are talking about getting that “great shot” of the aircraft which it is finally running commercially.

    How boring can some sections of the media get?

    Its my dream to be on that flight.
