A380 returns Print

Bert Rose A380 cockpitThe Airbus A380 returned to CYFB, Iqaluit for some additional cold weather testing in January of 2013.  They spent the better part of a week here, testing a new Rolls-Royce engine. As always, a plane that big in a town this small creates a lot of attention.  Bert Rose and Cam McGregor, part of the original Polar Pilots group here in Iqaluit, got a tour of the plane with test pilot Thierry Bourges.  This photo is Bert Rose sitting in the left seat.  Quite a difference between the cockpit of a C172, and the Airbus A380!
