British Airways' first A380 superjumbo has landed in Cardiff Airport allowing the airport to test its ability to handle an aircraft of that size.

It was the first time the world's largest passenger plane had landed at Cardiff and BA has said it hoped it would prove the airport can cope if the plane had to be diverted there in future.

BA has a maintenance base at Cardiff Airport, employing hundreds of workers.
