Yes the A346 is so long, that when ...
- the sun is rising in the front it's still dark in the rear
- the plane flies a turn, passengers in a rear window seat can look into the cockpit from the outside
it is not true though that
- there are two arrival times for forward and rear cabin
- the captain gets roller blades for his "walk around"

I have actually heard from friends who are crew on B757-300 that fish-tailing is a common problem on this aircraft type. Considering the length of the A340-600 and its slim cross section compared to other wide-bodies (777 / 747), I would imagine this to be a problem with this aircraft as well. Any comments?

I think we have to get a new thread on how it could happen that you didn't notice the lenght in feet, why you didn't double check your reply & if this did happen in the past & probably will happen in the future & how to prevent his.
I think we have to open a thread on this with everybody having the chance to give his/her opinion on this matter.
Back to the subject ;
As everybody knows lenght is not the most important thing.

Get the hell off Fritzi's back, Rw77447! I have made the same mistakes misreading lengths for an aircraft many times, and that doesn't make me an idiot. This is my comment to you: Either you should learn how to have a goddamn discussion in this forum or you should get the hell off of it!

Rw77447: You give me proof that there are no mathematical mistakes or any kind of errors by anybody on this forum and I will back you up, But clearly that link that Fritzi put up on here did say....... ..........via barge, to a static display within the Dome. The Spruce Goose has a gross weight of 136,000 Kg (150 tons), a total height of 24 meters (79 feet), a total length of 150 meters (320 feet), and a wing span just over the length of one football field..... So it was not him that made the mistake, it was the website, and we are told to back up our posts with a link or source and he did just that!
