UPDATED:   28 October 2016 with A380 First Flight Cover listing- We hope you enjoy reading this page and scrolling through the Covers shown. cddstamps has flown many A380 inaugurals  (including Asiana, China Southern, Korean Air, Malaysian Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Qantas)  and carried  our own cddstamps First Flight Covers. These are - whenever possible -  signed by the Flight Deck and Cabin Crew. We have also had covers on the 787 first test flight, and the first ANA commercial 787 flight, the first Cathay Pacific 747F delivery Flight, the first flight of Cathay's A350  and a Cathay Pacific 777 delivery flight. When we sell First Flight Covers these come with a Certificate of Authenticity AND where ever possible, pictures from the flight as proof the covers were in fact flown.   If Aerophilately and First Flight Covers is an interest of your please scroll down to see a selection of some A380 First Flight Covers or write to cddstamps@gmail.com  for more details of flights and covers available. Our most current project was to get covers on Cathay Pacific's A350 Test Acceptance flight, the delivery flight from Toulouse to Hong Kong, and to fly with our First Flight Covers on the first Cathay Pacific A350 commercial flight - Hong Kong to Manila and return - on 1st June 2016 - see a few pictures below. Thanks go to the pilots and crews who so willingly gave their time to sign covers, and some friends from the First to Fly club who have also carried my covers when I was unable to make the flight. If you have  questions about any covers please ask  - there is more rubbish and make believe material out there than I care to think about 🙂 After the images below please scroll down for a listing of cddstamps flown A380 Covers
