What an enormous aircraft! Watch as perform a rolling departure from the runway 18 and lift off to the South before turning West! We needed every inch of runway space to get airborne! Fantastic Rolls Royce Trent 900 engine sound as we slowly climb higher and higher! Listen for the two cabin announcements: one in English and one in English! There's actually 3 total A380's in this video: one taxiing behind us for a trip to New York City, one of those had just landed on runway 25L in the distance and the one we're flying on! You can also see Airbus A330 from Air Canada and Lufthansa in line for takeoff! Notice how the inboard engine nosecone is painted yellow, while the outboard engine nosecone is painted white?!? Unusually warm weather in Frankfurt today 86 degrees Fahrenheit / 30 degrees Celsius! Excellent flying weather! Gorgeous green countryside below! Excellent service on board! Look at that wingspan! Filmed from the Economy Cabin on board Lufthansa! Flight 462 to Miami. 22.05.14.

Want more awesome aviation footage?!? Check out my channel !!


  1. Deep deep metallic grind of the huge Rolls Royce Trent 970 reaches the lower limit of audible sound. Almost like some huge interglactic UFO, or the USS Enterprise Galaxy Class at warp. Lol! Take this ship back to WWII and they would say "You are from outer space"!!!

  2. hum lets mosey into the "No entry" lane at the beginning of the tape?  I wonder where that lane is going.  Does anyone know?

  3. Great footage! Those engines look massive – more so from the first level (ground floor, whatever it's called 🙂 !

  4. The Pilot is hardly running those massive engines. With so much wing area for lift you don't have to push them very hard at all. She's a beautiful piece of engineering no doubt! Below is the some info on these awesome engines:

    The Trent 900 family powers the Airbus A380. It comes in two thrust ratings for the A380, 310 kN (70,000 lbf) and 320 kN (72,000 lbf) but is capable of achieving 360 kN (81,000 lbf).
    It features a significant amount of technology inherited from the 8104
    demonstrator including its 2.95 m (116 in) diameter swept-back fan which
    provides greater thrust for the same engine size, and is also about 15
    percent lighter than previous wide-chord blades. It is also the first
    member of the Trent family to feature a contra-rotating HP spool and
    uses the core of the very reliable Trent 500. It is the only A380 engine
    that can be transported on a Boeing 747 freighter whole.

  5. Im impressed by the brains it took to make this plane. However it is hilariously underpowered. Curious, is the upper deck economy class as well, or first class?

  6. Did anyone stop to think that the flight out of FRA airspace may have been instructed to operate within certain height limitations rather than thinking the aircraft is the issue or it's underpowered or it's going to stall or it doesn't make the right flavour of ice-cream…?!  That type of departure is very common at airports where there are multiple runway / high departure and arrival numbers. 

  7. the part I hate about leaving Germany  knowing that I am having to come back home and go back to work . sure miss my inlaws .nue to dfw LH 438
