It has emerged that Captain Quainoo, the Ghanaian who flew the biggest flight to the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), announced the take-off of Emirates Airbus A380 in Twi before translating into English for others who did not understand.
The Emirates Airbus A380 touched down at the Kotoka International Airport’s Terminal 3, Accra to a water cannon salute.
The flight had made a one-off flight to the Kotoka International Airport on Tuesday, October 2.
Its arrival commemorated the grand opening of the newly built state-of-the-art Terminal 3 of the KIA.
The Airbus A380, which carries between 525 and 853 people depending on class configuration, was to test the airport’s readiness to accommodate the world’s largest commercial passenger jet.
As earlier reported, Ghanaian pilot Captain Samuel Quainoo flew the Airbus A380 on this historic journey.
Supporting him was Senior First Officer Faisal Alhammadi from the UAE.
On hand to meet the plane were leading members of the Akufo-Addo government including the former and current minister for Aviation.
Meanwhile, before the flight took off from Dubai, Captain Quainoo did something special on the plane.
