Saturday 31/01/2009 (09:55 – 20:45L)

My second visit of the month, primarily to catch the first Air France A380 in daylight …I wasn’t disappointed!.
 
Mach II and A380 tours were taken to help compensate for the lack of a chauffeur so I’m confident this is a pretty comprehensive account of the inhabitants.

My latest log from the Airbus Theme Park, this time solo and on foot with a Mach II tour to provide access to the main Airbus plant.
 
No photos from me this trip (…poorly camera) but check out the following nice images from John Creasey http://www.flickr.com/photos/johncreasey/sets/72157609155295033/
 
Thanks are also due to John for verifying a number of sightings which I was unable to eyeball on the day.
