Red Arrows

The first of British Airways A380s made its first official appearance at the weekend as it took part at the Royal International Air Tattoo.

The tattoo took place at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire and involved the A380 flying in formation with the world-famous Red Arrows.

Captaining the aircraft was British Airways pilot Charles Everett although it was senior first officer Peter Nye who was at the controls. Earlier last week, the A380 and Red Arrows were seen practising for the show in the skies above Manston Airport in Kent where the aircraft is based for final training and trials.
