If you’re in Houston, there’s a party being held for the arrival of the first Lufthansa Airbus A380 flight on 1st August.
This will be the first arrival of the type on the Frankfurt – Houston George Bush Intercontinental route, as it takes over from the regular Boeing 747-400 aircraft.
General visitors are encouraged to head to the IAH Airport Ranger Trailhead viewing location off FM 1960 just east of Farrell Road to watch the arrival, which is scheduled for 1.50pm. There will be a party held to greet the arrival, including yodelling competition, Lederhosen contest, live DJ, food and drink, and a free gift for all who come.
The party takes place from midday to 2pm. Check out this website for more information, including directions: http://www.fly2houston.com/A380party
An official party is being laid on at the gate for press and those who pre-register, with the opportunity of a tour of the aircraft, and more festivities.
