    Airbus celestial porthole
    From: Frank Reed
    Date: 2009 Jul 30, 15:35 -0700

    According to AVweb.com, the huge Airbus A380 is at Oshkosh this week for the 
    annual "AirVenture" fly-in. Here's a little item that Google News spotted for 
    me:
    "The top floor has a small porthole in the top of the fuselage so engineers 
    can use celestial navigation to double-check their instruments -- a feature 
    that the customer copies don't have"
    
    "Customer copies", by the way, means production aircraft. This Airbus is a 
    test model. If you visit AVweb.com, you can also watch a video showing the 
    plane making a very hard landing when it arrived in Oshkosh. Ouch.
