A380 Superjumbo Jet Lands in Sydney
The world's largest passenger plane, the Airbus A380, has landed in Sydney on its first commercial flight, after a seven hour journey from Singapore. Singapore Airlines took delivery of the huge plane, dubbed the Superjumbo, just over a week ago. Passengers bought seats in a charity online auction. It can carry some 850 passengers, but took about 450 to Sidney. The superjumbo's advent ends a reign of nearly four decades by the Boeing 747 as the world's biggest airliner.
