Here’s a little snippet for all you plane spotters out there: the A380 has just taken off on its maiden flight. For those of out of the loop in aeronautical matters, the A380 is a double-decker super jumbo plane. According to rumours, Virgin airways has planned to buy a whole bundle of these babies and outfit with casinos and bedrooms, to make for a smoother flight, so to speak. The plane is also likely to have wireless internet access, as the number of planes offering wireless continue to increase, as we have reported. You can watch the takeoff courtesy of the good ol’ beeb, right here.
