Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380 First Test Flight

MAS A380 Test Flight
The Malaysia Airlines Airbus A380 first test flight took off from Toulouse, France for its maiden flight on 20th October 2011.

After a successful flight of five hours, the aircraft returned to the Airbus factory in Toulouse to be prepared for its next journey to the Airbus facilities in Hamburg, Germany for cabin installation and painting and then sent back to Toulouse before doing the official handover.

For now, there is still no ideas on the interior of the MAS plane as it is still very tight lipped. In the picture above, you see the body of the plane still in its raw colors. Only the tail fin has been painted with the national carriers logo.

The Malaysia Airlines A380 plane is also powered by four Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines and the aircraft is the first of six A380s ordered by the national carrier where the scheduled for delivery is speculated in the second quarter of 2012. 

Malaysia Airlines will be the 8th airline to operate the A380 plane and the route which will most likely be used for this amazing plane is the Kuala Lumpur-London sector.

Maslaysia is a dream come true for some. Not so lucky for others though which can be heart wrenchingly painful but hey...those who make it there are very lucky indeed.
