A380 MSN014 Flies!

The first QANTAS A380 took to the skies this morning over Toulouse. MSN014 with temporary registration F-WWSK will be delivered in her final form as VH-OQA in October 2008.

UPDATE 10:21 AM:

In other QANTAS news, a French blogger Katener photographed A380 structures for MSN029 being delivered to in a convoy earlier this week. A special thank you to a fellow spotter whose eagle eyes identified the MSN and the upper deck window configuration as being unique to the Australian flag carrier.
