I saw the A380 at Tulla. But I got there after the landing so that picture is about it! The back road was bumper-to-bumper and I had to wait about an hour to get back out of the place. Why would anyone go all that way to see a tailplane? Beats me. And anyway, doesn't anyone work anymore?
UPDATE: In breaking news on the Hun's website the following claim was made: "The top of the aircraft's fuselage is as high as a seven-storey building and can carry up to 840 passengers"! If they include the bottom as well, what is the total human manifest count?
Also: "A Victoria Police spokesman said the visit caused traffic chaos on the Tullamarine Freeway and Sunbury Road near the airport". You're darn tootin' it was chaos. I was there in a 5km queue just to get back onto the main road.
UPUPDATE: If it is seven storeys high, how come we can't see it over the top of that 3-4 storey terminal just obscuring the extended, extended, extended upper deck?
