Lufthansa - D-AIMB - Airbus A380-841

The first time a A380 visit Finland. (And maybe the last).

Lufthansa wanted to try the main nordic airports to know if they can use them (Kastrup, Arlanda, Oslo, Helsinki) with the A380 in emergency situations. The tests resulted in good results and Helsinki showed to work well for the A380.

In Finland this was a big thing, the newspapers were full of articles about it and they told about the visit on the TV news. Thousands of people gathered around the airport to be apart of this unique happening.
