Thread: Airbus A380

    Aircraft landed at 10:02 at 02C. So my guess was right, they did use the longer runway. Sadly, it was too far from my hangar, on the other side of the airport... Only saw the tail taxi by.

    EDIT: YAY!!! It actually taxied one round around the airport and went past in front of my hangar! Had a great view!!

    Nope... cannot bring cameras into my workplace leh. My company does servicing for airliners so they're ultra-strict about it.

    Weg, where did you take the shots from?

    I was at Viewing mall, and all I can say is: CRAP!

    After renovation it's just crap! No longer clear glass windows. Very squeezy too!


    A few observations:

    1. The plane did not taxi to the gate immediately. It went one big round
    2. The passing by Garuda B737 & Silk Air A320 looks like an ant compared to the A380
    3. After docking at gate F31, the wings still flapping very slightly
    4. Seems to me that no other planes the size of B777 and above can park beside A380

    Wah! That's a great place.

    Take off? Be at the Airport by about 8.30PM

    I'm estimating it will leave between 9 ~ 10 PM (With DST accounted for)

    Sydney time is 2hrs ahead of Singapore.

    8AM Sydney = 6AM Singapore.

    6AM minus seven and half hours is 10.30PM

    With DST, IIRC the time difference would be 3 hours. So with DST accounted for, the plane would depart approx. 9.30PM

    No guarantee of specific time. So if you wanna shoot it departing/leaving the gate, then 8.30PM would be the time to reach airport viewing mall or changi coastal road

    Just came back from the Viewing Mall as well... Totally agree with Rinaldi that it's crap. Bad enough with two pieces of glass in the way... now have to make do with another set of windows AND that ugly metal frame.

    I suspect T3's viewing mall will be the same design unfortunately.

    Oh my.. I hope in future they have an open air smoking area right at the side of viewing mall. I wouldn't mind inhaling some of the smokes in exchange for a better view
