Remarks: Second US takeoff of this brand new beautifully painted A380, here at JFK, 31L. Aircraft pushed back 50 minutes late and departed 30 minutes thereafter on a beautifully sunny afternoon (1200x800 pixels).
Remarks: ...just about to leave for Tel Aviv...as the three children in this boat eagerly look on, and the guy fishing is more interested in catching his dinner. Note the Manhattan skyline in the background (1200x800 pixels).
Remarks: QANTAS' new huge A380 tail (VH-OQA) shown against John Travolta's smaller 707 tail (notice the size comparison relative to the two people at the bottom of the image) . This was the A380 which blew an engine near Singapore on 4 November, 2010, though here it was on its inaugural flight out of LAX (1200x800 pixels).
Remarks: A special thanks to the AAFB folks for permitting this photo during summer of 2006. This is typically the aircraft used by the Secretary of State for various international political visits. Notice how clean the aircraft is (1200x800 pixels).
Remarks: Brand new QANTAS A380 leaving LAX for a short trip north to SFO with actors John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John on board. Note you are looking at engine #2, which, on November 4, 2010, ripped apart after takeoff, some two years after this image was taken. Take a look at those bright blue exhaust cones! (1200x800 pixels)
