Will Fly From Toulouse
More than 50,000 spectators are expected at the Airbus plant in
Toulouse, France, Wednesday when the Airbus A380 takes to the sky
for its first flight.
"The first flight will take place Wednesday, if weather permits
and excluding a last-minute technical glitch," an Airbus
spokeswoman told the Agence France news agency.
It will be the first flight in what's expected to be at least a
year's worth of test flying, as airports around the world consider
how they will accommodate the super-jumbo jet.
Already, governments involved in backing the Airbus giant are
hailing it as a success -- even though it was $1.9 billion
over-budget as of last December, according to the BBC.
The A380 began taxi tests last week in Toulouse. It's official
public debut is scheduled for the Paris Air Show in June.
