A cool camera on the A380

Just back from a trip to Australia - plenty to come from that, including a bunch of videos.

But an exciting moment was the flight home - my first flight on an Airbus A380.

I'm bit of an aviation enthusiast and was very curious about the giant plane.

Both legs were very smooth and I was impressed by how roomy the cabin was, even in the cheap seats!

Another thing I really liked was the view from a camera mounted in the plane's wing (which can be watched from your seat).

It was really cool landing at Heathrow, watching from this unusual angle.

The only problem was the English cloud and fog very close to ground level... the camera was covered with droplets and obscured the landing!

The only other problem was caused by the A380's enormous wings.

As we flew over Ayers Rock, in Australia, the captain banked the plane passengers could see.

But anyone sitting in the MANY rows over the wings saw nothing, myself included.
