A380 at Birmingham Airport - 9th Sept 2009
The arrival of the world's largest passenger airliner, an Emirates Airlines A380 Airbus, marks the 70th anniversary of Birmingham International Airport, formerly Elmdon Airport, and the opening of a new international pier. Thousands of people turned out to view the aircraft.
The A380 arrived from Dubai and returned later in the afternoon.
Several classic aircraft flew in for the occasion.
