Greetings from London! I'm all set up here for the week at Flight HQ and I've wrapped up my final Oshkosh EAA 2009 video for the show. When the A380 (MSN004) touched down at Oshkosh on Tueday, it was greeted with an extraordinary silence from the thousands of onlookers who had come from far and wide to see the superjumbo up close, most for the first time.
After it landed at Wittman Regional Airport, Flight was invited on board for a tour of the A380 by Claude LeLaie senior vice president of the flight division, who sat in the right seat during the challenging approach to Oshkosh. I filmed the tour with just my iPhone (voice overs too) and the result is a closer look inside the world's largest commercial aircraft.
My colleague, Stuart Clarke, also joined me on the aircraft and had a more proper video camera to capture the tour. There's only a little overlap between our two videos, so consider them companion guides to an A380 flight test aircraft.
