The Airbus A380 mega-airliner frequently takes off and lands at Toulouse : it is final-assembled near-by in a huge plant. All of the neighborhood inhabitants feel like they are taking part of the airplane fate.

It therefore routinely flies over Montlaur that is located about 30 km from the Toulouse-Blagnac airfield. That is 20 km South-East of Toulouse.

The Ramplou's family has built colorful decorations and lighting in the garden of their house in Montlaur as they do to celebrate every Christmas and New Year's season.

A mock-up of the huge Airship is proudly presented in a large private hangar near the house. As in reality but statically, it flies over the blue water of the Lac de la Ganguise and over the small villages that are nested on the hilltops of Lauragais...

I have asked Pierre Ramplou to let me shoot a photographic souvenir at the occasion of the "Wrinkle in time" 10th anniversary tribute and he has warmly greeted me on the night of the winter solstice in this sanctuary of Aviation.

I hope you shall enjoy this nice VR aeronautics and domestic show...

L'A380 va attrerrir où il est né

L'A380 décolle et atterrit fréquemment à Blagnac: il est en effet assemblé près des pistes dans une énorme et nouvelle usine. Chacun du voisinage se sent partie prenante du sort de cet avion mythique.

Ainsi, il vole souvent au-dessus de Montlaur qui est situé à environ 30 km de l'aérodrome, au sud-sud-est de Toulouse.

C'est là que la famille Ramplou a construit dans le jardin des décorations et des éclairages comme chaque fin d'année pour célébrer Noël et Nouvel An.

Une maquette géante de l'avion géant est fièrement présentée dans un décor construit sous le toit d'un immense hangar privé. Comme dans la réalité mais de façon statique, il vole au-dessus des eaux bleues du Lac de la Ganguise et au-dessus des petits villages qui occupent les sommets des collines du Lauragais...

J'ai demandé à Pierre Ramplou de me laisser prendre un souvenir photographique à l'occasion du 10ème anniversaire de "Wrinkle-in-time" et il m'a gentiment accueilli la nuit du solstice dans son sanctuaire aéronautique.

Je veux croire que vous aurez du plaisir à flâner inter-activement dans ce spectacle domestique en réalité virtuelle...
