Superjumbo lands in Prague

Over a thousand aviation fans descended on Prague’s Ruzyne Airport on Sunday morning for the first ever landing in Prague of the superjumbo A380 airbus. The double-decker airliner built for 850 passengers sported Lufthansa colours and landed in Prague just after 9 am Central European Time, some six hour earlier than originally announced. The colossal plane circled above the airport for about twenty minutes before making a problem free landing. It returned to its home base in Frankfurt shortly after midday. The appearance of the airbus in Prague was scheduled to mark the 45th anniversary of Lufthansa flights to the Czech Republic.
