I couldn't find any information on the first roll-out, but I believe it is scheduled for the end of this year. Anyone who knows more?

I strongly doubt Boeing´s getting 380 for 7e7 parts! They building their own Boeing-Beluga of a 747........*how original!!*

Solnabo: Why should they do that??? If the 747 Beluga works, why not use it?
