ST5877 : A380 Airbus over Cherrington Road

near to Redland, Bristol, Great Britain

A380 Airbus over Cherrington Road
A380 Airbus over Cherrington Road
This was the first time the A380 Airbus had come to Bristol where parts of the wings and engine had been made at Airbus and Rolls Royce respectively. It did 3 circuits over to the Clifton Suspension Bridge (to pay a tribute to Brunel) and back upto the Filton Airfield where the staff were all out to watch. The plane then went on to Heathrow.

As the wings are 262 feet long, it is too large to land at either of the airports in Bristol. It was quiet even though it was flying quite low.
