I love the A380. Even though it has run into some hiccups I think it will turn out to be a great and successful airplane.

A380 lands in Vancouver

VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Steven Halinen was supposed to be in college Wednesday, but instead he abandoned his classes to watch what will soon be the world's biggest commercial jetliner make a quick stop at the Vancouver International Airport.

"Wow, it's gorgeous," Halinen, 22, said as he stood in snow and bitterly cold morning temperatures when the big Airbus A380 taxied past him after landing at 7:32 a.m. Dawn was just breaking over the airport as the double-decker jet, which will typically seat about 100 more passengers than a 747, approached from the north after a flight across the Pacific from Sydney, Australia.

"Oh my, just look at that thing. It's huge," Halinen said.

The plane was due to depart Vancouver at 4:30 p.m. for its return via the North Pole to the Airbus headquarters of Toulouse, France.

It stopped in Vancouver as part of a series of technical route-proving flights, the final process in a long test flight program that is required before a new jetliner receives a critical airworthiness certificate and is allowed to carry paying passengers for airlines.

That certification for the A380 from the FAA in the United States, and from European regulators, is expected Dec. 12, Airbus said at an airport news conference following the plane's arrival here.

But because of wiring problems that have set the program back nearly two years, the first A380 won't be ready for delivery to Singapore Airlines until October 2007.

The 150 hours of route-proving flights, which began Nov. 13 from Toulouse, took the A380 around the world three times to 10 different airports.

The stop in Vancouver was the plane's first visit to an international airport in North America. But the A380 has been to Canada before. Last winter, it landed in Iqaluit, a remote area of the country, for cold weather testing.

Vancouver may not have been all that much warmer than Iqaluit Wednesday. The temperature was well below freezing when reporters and photographers were bused out to a remote section of the airport to watch the plane's arrival.

The A380 was parked far away from the airport terminal, in an area that is used to de-ice planes when there is snow. Media were not allowed inside the plane.

Airbus disclosed that the A380 will make its first flights to cities in the United States next year before entering airline service, though exactly which airports it will visit has not been determined. Several airports in the U.S., including Los Angeles and New York's Kennedy, are being readied to accommodate the A380, which has a much bigger wingspan -- nearly 262 feet from tip to tip -- than the 747.

But don't expect to see the A380 at Sea-Tac Airport anytime soon. The runways are big enough to handle the plane if it needed to land there, but the airport does not intend to spend the millions of dollars that would be required before the A380 could operate in regular airline service from gates at Sea-Tac, an airport spokesman said.
