Airbus A380-800 (G-XLEE)


First scheduled BA A380 flight to Boston. Landing between a cargo vessel and an AT-AT.

Interesting "perspective". At 1st I thought the A380 was "behind" the cargo vessel, then noticed the exhaust distorting the photo.

5 stars for nothing more than the AT-AT comment.

Loved the obscure movie reference, great photo as well.
Had to look up AT-AT. I saw the movie but didn't remember. I'm going to use it whenever I can.
Great shot.
