Probably a "once only" capture of the "daily whale flight arrival" into Christchurch with such a gorgeous aircraft waiting in the background! On 20 July, SOFIA (N747NA), our part time resident B74S, was scheduled to depart and fly back to Palmdale AFB via Hawaii, but was a little early at the holding point, so had to give way to the landing A380. And I was ready up the ladder to see over the fence and capture the beaut "8 engine meet". I understand that Christchurch is the smallest international airport to serve the A380, and we get one daily. So, for a small country and small airport, we certainly get some unique "Heavies" and "Supers-Heavies" quite regularly.
