Wednesday 08/04/2009 (09:20-22:05L)

April’s first visit, this time with car and a full afternoon of tours (MACH II and J.L. LAGARDERE A380) to provide access to the main plants.  

In addition to this, a number of ‘firsts’ were also witnessed: the positioning into the mating jig of the front-fuselage section of the first A330MRTT for the UK Royal Air Force, the ‘birth’ of an A330: MSN1031, delivery of the latest for Singapore Airlines, yet another ATE swap-over: this time an A320 in the stunning new SATA Internacional scheme, followed by a primer ATR72 going in.  Add to that the rollout of an Iberia A340-600 in storage primer, departure of an S7 A320 to Finkenwerder and preparations – complete with palms – for the delivery of the latest ATR72 for Air Tahiti all made for an action-packed day.

Saturday 07/03/2009 (23:10-01:35L) & Sunday 08/03/2009 (07:10-16:45L)

March’s first visit, this time travelling in style via Frankfurt and the delights of Lufthansa CityLine.  Being a Sunday there was little activity at the plant, however with wheels and mostly empty roads, it was easy to note – and photograph just about everything that was visible.  Hangar doors remained firmly shut for the most part, but this was compensated by the packed ramps, especially at l’aubrevouir and St. Martin du Touch. 

Arriving close to midnight gave some interesting views of the A380 (J.L. Lagardere) FAL – see photos – which thanks to the lights would not have been possible otherwise. 

An interesting new raised vantage point was discovered overlooking the rear of the main plant at Chemin de Gramont.  This spot has real potential if the C. ADER FAL is open and is recommended to anyone visiting with wheels.

Saturday 21/02/2009 (09:45-20:40L)

February’s visit, a week after my team mate’s, with a Mach II tour taken to provide access to the plant.  My luck was in as the ADER production line was partially open affording a view of 4 out of the 6 widebody frames under construction (details below).  As the Airbus Visit tour of the hall is now restricted to educational groups, this was an unexpected bonus.

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.
