The A380 has come and gone again.
I think this message from Ryan sums it up:
1.45pm WTF? We had the whole office outside in the cold mate, very unimpressed….. Whats the story samual?
Well, 1:45pm was accurate when I left for Mt. Ainslie…unfortunately the time blew out to about 2:15. There were an awful lot of very cold people on the top of Mount Ainslie, and worse yet, due to the altitude of the plane, it looked just like any other plane to the naked eye.
That being said, the cameras picked it up pretty well, and Channel Nine (who seemed to be the only television station up there) may have some good footage on their news bulletin tonight.
I’ve cropped those images so that you can actually see the plane without squinting, however you can get a slightly larger version if you click on them.
As quickly as the plane came, it went again. One quick lap of Canberra was all we got. Mind you, it was that far behind schedule that it’s probably not even back in Sydney yet.
So, to all of you who froze because I was relaying the 1:45pm time, I apologise…I hope you have a heater nearby, I know I need one.
