    Orlando (MCO) Airbus A380 shots. First FL arrival.

    Greetings,
    Below are few shots of the A380's first Orlando (MCO) and Florida arrival.
    I am still a little annoyed I flew all the way to NY to shoot its March arrival just to have it arrive into MCO a few months later. But at least I got better shots this time around. All in all it was a very pleasant experience.

    Hey Senga,

    If it's any consolation, it's a different aircraft.

    The NY one was for Lufthansa, the MCO one is IIRC for SQ :D

    Yep, the flight that visited JFK was operated by Lufthansa, but the aircraft will actually be delivered to Singapore.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Great shots, Senga - how did you pull off getting on board? And don't feel so bad - it wasn't a wasted trip to NY, it was the first US landing of the A380, a once in a lifetime event.

    How Senga got access?

    1) My Charming demeanor, Winning Personality and good looks!....how else!?
    or
    2) I Punched, Kicked and stabbed my way to the aircraft.
    or how about..
    3) Voodoo man!, Voodoo!...its all in the bones!
    4) Press Pass

    Matt, yes those seats are pretty ugly...everything else was cool but that. They looks like my grandmothers dining room chairs.

    Moose..thats true.......I was happy to get the A380 then :) What a day that was that was at JFK. I love the A380.

    Gordon.....you change your avatar.....I....I can't deal with this......


    Heres 2 from day 2 at MCO..Went over to the A380 since I had to drop someone off at the airport.

    Senga, great job as usual. Did you (or did anyone here) happen to learn why JB has "JPL" on the nosegear doors? Is it part of some future registration? According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A380_orders) ship 007 will be going to EK but this is puzzling since she currently wears Trents and EK has ordered the EA engines...

    Thanks Nonstop2AUH,
    the PR lady stated that "JPL" are the initials for one of the main captains on this A380.
