A380 First Flight
The world’s largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380, has landed safely, completing its maiden flight.
The long-awaited test lasted almost four hours, with the A380 circling the Bay of Biscay before returning to base.
The A380 took off from its production site in Toulouse with a crew of six and about 20 tonnes of test equipment.
Thousands of aeroplane enthusiasts clapped and cheered as the twin-decked, four-engine “superjumbo” made a flypast before landing.
