Why don't you try an internet search? Type in the word a380 and see how many responses you get. There are enough to keep you going for quite some time. If you're really that fascinated, you could also email the publicity department at Airbus and ask for a brochure and a video.

I don't understand ,how can someone consider todays pasenger and cargoplanes beautifull. They are all ugly, just a thick tube with wings.
Only Concorde and maybe Sonic cruiser concept looked decent.

Well I don't understand those people who think the Raptor is beautiful, Fabulous it may be but it is also pig ugly. Its all in the eye of the beholder and to me that vast white double deck airframe with those huge and curvacious wings is beautiful.

I remember when the 777 came out I was so shocked at seeing a 747-200 replacement that was a twinjet! The sheer size of it and only two engines, remarkable.

For an airline that was the best part.. fewer engines means less maintenance..

For the 'hobbiests', I'm with you... those engines are freakin' huge (I love the engines for that thing.. all that power too... mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

Commerical airplanes have a bueaty all to thier own. I love the pictures with the 777 in flight and the amount of flex in the wings is really apparent as the tips curve upward.!!!!

The Airbus looks a bit chubby with its doubledecker waistline, but if they bring out the stretched versions that can carry a few hundred extra passengers, it will have much better proportions...

Also I really hope some crazy engineer has the guts to come up with a big fat Boeing or Airbus featuring forward wings. After all forward things supposed to have more lift wich should translate in better economy.

There is a stretched A380-900 version planned, it will carry an extra 100 or so passengers, and is planned for inservice 2 years after the A380-800. There is also a shortened -700 version as well, so expect it to look uber chubby


If you meant forward swept wings, you do realise that theres almost no reason for a commercial airliner to have them? They do very little of efficiency, but they work wonders for manoeuverability - not something you are really aiming for when carrying 600 passengers
