My own picture of British Airways' first A380

Pictures of British Airways first Airbus A380 have finally been published.

I was really looking forward to this moment...so that I could finally post my own BA A380 picture, which I took a few months back during a trip to Airbus' A380 assembly line in Toulouse!

Although the purpose of the trip was to cover the delivery of Thai Airways' first A380 (you can see my blog posts about the event here: "Visit to the Airbus Factory", "Outside Thai Airways first A380", and "Onboard Thai Airway's first A380") as well as the article I wrote for Flightglobal), all visitors on the press trip could see BA's first A380 being built, already with the Union Jack painted on its tail.

Airbus' people asked us not to publish it at the time, since the aircraft had not yet been publicly unveiled, but I guess I no one will really mind if I post the picture now...
