This had to be something to see! Large and in charge, it's hard to imagine how the worlds largest passenger plane looks, sounds coming in for a landing! On Tuesday, evening, (November 5, 2018) DIA got to make use of gates that they don't normally use- those suited for just such a landing. They opened up their 16,000-foot runway- long enough to accommodate an Airbus A380.

In their tweet last night, DIA said it was the first time that that has happened, and it was due to a 'medical issue' on the aircraft.  The plane wasn't there very long- it sounds like it left just a little while after landing.

In the end, I guess it's good to get some practice using that runway and those gates, while they wait for one of the airlines that fly A380s to use DIA as a stop!
