Workers and locals near Airbus in Broughton, Flintshire, got their first glimpse of the A380 super jumbo in flight yesterday, as it circled twice over the factory where its wings are made. Around 6000 Airbus workers witnessed the flight, reports BBC Wales news before the plane headed to Heathrow airport.

Andy from Broughton described it as an "amazing sight" and pictures sent in to the NE Wales website certainly confirm that view.
