The ACN-RAA 2021 Photo Contest has come to a close! And I’m pleased to announce that our Grand Prize winner is Ian H. from Kingwood, TX. His photo, titled the Royal Megaliner, is of an A380 coming out of the clouds on final approach into IAH. It was taken last year just as the COVID-19 pandemic was causing shutdowns. Most A380’s have since been grounded, but Singapore Airlines announced in October that they will resume flying their A380s in November. Qantas Airways announced in November that they will start flying their A380s in 2022 from Sydney to Los Angeles.
It’s amazing how much has transpired since the beginning of 2020 and how much recovery from the pandemic we have seen. Keep the blue up top (unless you’re an aerobatic pilot) and the wind at your back!
Hug your family extra tightly this holiday season and I will be back with you in the new year!
