A380 over Cape Town

Remember this line:

…that will be the day when an Airbus A380 flies over the middle of London, much too low, with one of its engines on fire.

from this post?

Well, what if that were almost to happen, but with Cape Town and no burning engine?

Lufthansa brought their A380 from Frankfurt to Cape Town today (via Jo’burg)┬áto do some promotional pics in front of what turned out to be a reclusive and grumpy mountain. While it was well-publicised in aircraft-enthusiast circles (and I’m not one of them), there wasn’t much else said about it.

More photos to follow shortly on flickr. <~ NOW UP!
