It flew at Paris...so theres a good hint! ANyone up for some back lane blasting around Manchester trying to find a place that isn't overloaded with spotters? I reckon my house is probably a safe bet, 40 miles away in South Cheshire!

If your idea of a party is tea and biscuits whilst scrabbling round on the roof of a house just to watch an A380 40miles from touchdown buzz over... PARTY ON DUDE!

From recent press release of testing of GP7200 engines: The first two aircraft have been successfully carrying out trials including aerodynamics, low speed and flight vibration tests. Cold weather trials are due to take place in Canada shortly, where the aircraft has to prove full functionality under extreme weather conditions of up to minus 40 degrees Celsius. The high altitude campaign successfully took place in Colombia earlier this month while the hot weather campaign will begin in the summer. So it looks like you won't have to wait that long! :D
