Airbus Buzzes Barcelona Beach
Tourists oblivious of the fact that the 19th edition of the Barcelona Airshow was taking place this weekend, could be forgiven for being a fraction nervous at the sight of a Lufthansa Airbus A380 flying low just over Barcelona beach (...and yes it's still beach weather in BCN!). However, as the huge but elegant jumbo jet veered and banked into the sky any trepidation turned to admiration during an acrobatic flight which would have had any passengers reaching for the sick bags.
The Airbus A380, the largest aircraft in the world, had arrived at Barcelona's El Prat airport with some ceremony before becoming part of the two day show over the Northern city beaches of Icaria, Bogatel, Mar Bella and Nova Mar Bella, which included helicopter sea rescue displays, fighter jets and acrobatic antics.
