Lufthansa A380 Lands at San Francisco

This is an email that I got:

This is a better aircraft video than most any I've seen before, as the first Lufthansa A380 lands at SFO. Whoever handled the photography did an excellent job and it pulled me right in!

It may be a guy thing, but I watched the whole video and was truly fascinated. The bilingual crew are very adept (as you would expect) but subtitles help keep things clear to the viewer.
The pilots sit away from everything, no yoke, etc. While the captain pulls up a
keyboard occasionally to enter info but the plane does most of the work as it is extensively automated; the air traffic controller gives them heading, altitude, and speed, and they just dial it in.
They get a nice and unusual welcome as they taxi to their gate … kind of fun to see.
For best results go "full screen" on your monitor. It will seem like you are
in the cockpit.
