Exclusive Video: Close call with an Airbus A380 at Auckland Airport had exclusive access to Auckland International Airport Tuesday as we added new photos to our photo news gallery for airport related news stories.

At the end of the day we were directly under the flight path near the eastern end of the runway when we captured this close call with an Airbus A380 coming in to land.

Our thanks to Aviation Security Services for providing the escorts around the runway and airport.

So what?
Get heaps of low flying aircraft flying over Yaldhurst’s Oderings in a NE flow, coming into land at Harewood?
The planes do land safely and I have a lot of trust in the people flying them.

Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak airport was the place for this sort of thing, continuous stream of aircraft coming in over a main hiway was an incredible experience. You could literally just about touch the aircraft.

That reminds me of a road in England that runs across the end of one of Heathrow airport’s runways. I recall driving along it and having a jet coming in to land right over the top of us. You could see the rivets in the panels, it was so close.

Very cool.

Hi, wheel marks on your head would be a close call.I guess it was just the noise and drama of it all.
regards Paul.

Love that video!!! I really like the Eremites branding on the belly of the jet. How cool is that?
