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.

Wednesday 24/09/2008 (11:15 – 20:15L)

My latest log from the Airbus Theme Park, this time solo and on foot with views limited to approach/ departure, the terminal area and covert visits to the car park.
The ‘Mach II’ tour option was taken to gain covert access to the main plant in-lieu of the much-missed Clement Ader (A330/40) tour.  To round things off the A380 tour was also taken.
