The size of this aircraft is mindblowing and the idea that it can move between 500 – 800 people is also amazing.

The Airbus corporation answer to the Boenig’s 747 came somehow late. The 380 appeared in serial production in late 2006 and there are almost 200 of them flying around.

The 380 is a natural beauty but it has its requirements – not all airports can take its size. 🙂BLOG5472 x 36487046
