    The WBZ feature story explained that the plane was carrying a small submarine that needed repairs. That sub was being used to search for the FDR coming from the Air France Airbus that crashed into the Atlantic. I cannot explain why a C-5 or a C-17 wasn't used instead, or at least an Atlas 744. But still, while the beast is here they may try towing it into a gate or 2, to see if it 'fits.'

    Probably because Airbus is footing much of the bill for the AF447 search. They might as well use their own equipment.

    CAUTION WHITE TURBULENCE I was at Logan to see the Big Jet fly, this morning. THE A380 was pushed back after 8:15am, was on the tarmac by 8:30am, and airborne about 8:50am. There were less than six plane spotters, plus two TV news camera crews on the 5th level of terminal B, where the view is Logan's best and has been since the yellowfins of Northeast and the silver and blue Eastern whisperjets flew here twenty five or thirty years ago. The white A380 rolled forward down runway 22L achieving flight about halfway down the long runway. Within ten seconds of becoming airborne, she banked firmly left and continued her climb out of KBOS airspace. A general aviation pilot happened to be standing next to me as we both turned to leave, and I said, "caution white turbulence" He laughed and nodded, echoing my thoughts. The A380 was quiet, made airspeed rather effortlessly, and with the sun shining off the fusilage she flew southeast out of Boston climbing steadily.
