Thanks to a DFW Spotters member who works out @ DFW Airport and Phil Plank, I got word that the Lufthansa A380 from Frankfurt had diverted from Houston due to weather. I quickly headed that way as DFW never sees A380’s. I snaked around a few street and was able to get up and close. Phil and Mike met me out there and we had a very nice conversation with the senior Photographer for the FW Star Telegram Paul Moseley. I was even able to assist him by letting him jump up in the bed of my truck to get some better shots. A couple other planes of interest were on display as well. I really enjoyed seeing this beast takeoff and in fact, they even closed the runway after his departure to make sure he didn’t crack the surface on takeoff! Enjoy the pics!
