Pictures Airbus A380 in Zurich Kloten


The Airbus A380 landed gently on runway 16 at Zurich airport shortly after 08.20 h on 20 January 2010. Over 10,000 people flocked to the airport to welcome the world’s largest passenger aircraft. The first aviation fans began to arrive at 07.30 h to bag the best places to marvel at the plane after it touched down. Solar pioneer Bertrand Piccard was among the large mixed public. “Just by accident - I had a meeting here,” he explained. The airport police cordoned off the last few metres around the Airbus.

The onlookers were able to admire the aircraft at close quarters but not board it. The public event ended at noon with the afternoon reserved for technicians to make a thorough inspection and run various airport tests, in accordance with the Federal Office of Civil Aviation regulations to allow the airport to be certified for Airbus 380 flights. The following day the Airbus flew to Geneva for the airport to undergo similar certification tests. The enormous aircraft then returned to the Airbus works in Toulouse, France. The Airbus 380 can carry up to 853 passengers on two levels and has an incredible wingspan of around 80 metres.
