First Airbus A380 to land in Montreal on November 12th

The Airbus A380, the world’s largest passenger airliner, will be making its first landing at Trudeau Airport on November 12. Although this is considered a route verification flight, the plane won’t be empty as more than 500 guests will be aboard. The Air France behemoth will return to Charles de Gaulle on November 15th.

You know where I’ll be.

    Any idea what time of day it’s coming in?

    I’m guessing late afternoon, we should have some really nice light.

    I also assume that it will be all over the local news by then.

    Nov. 12th eta 1250

    Don’t get too exited by pitfield… heard that security might be pretty strong around the airfield… (close street with restricted access)
    I even heard the 13 might be close between 40 and 520…

    for my part… I’ll be at the gate working the flight ;)

    good luck!

    Does anyone know what airport KCMO is? It doesn’t show up on any ICAO list. Makes you question the credibility…

    Copied from business-traveler.eu:

    MSN007 will leave Montreal on 13th November to go to Orlando International Airport in Florida (United States). It is scheduled to return to Montreal on 15th November, continuing to Paris – Charles de Gaulle on the same day, and then back to its Toulouse base.

    I would LOVE to be in Montreal to see it, but I live in Huntsville Ontario–too far…but if she ever came into Lester B. Pearson in Toronto, I’d definitely be there!!

    CYUL-KMCO and KMCO-CYUL seem more likely…

    If all of this were true, it would be in all the newspapers and on all newscasts all over the city; so far, not a peep…

    “If all of this were true, it would be in all the newspapers and on all newscasts all over the city; so far, not a peep…”

    I work at Montreal’s YUL airport… And it’s been over 3 months that our handling compagny is working towards receiving that big bird… It’s is true…

    All the hours/routes that Mike gave are good.. providing there’s no delay… which.. in aviation can occur..

    check out the news today! maybe you’ll see me…
