Airbus have put up some nice photos on their website of the A380. One of the best photos of the A380 I've ever seen is http://www.airbus.com/MultimediaElements/3425.jpg
because you can really get an impression of the dimensions of the A380 compared to the A346s and other planes in the background.

Some others:

F-WWOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!
While I think the A380 looks fantastic, so far I've thought it looks smaller than I expected. The first link you showed blows that idea out of the water. This is an amazing shot, and AT LAST we are seeing the A380 in its second natural environment (airport vs air). It just dwarfs the A340-600 in the background!

You'll get used to it! Any new design always takes time to assimilate itself into public perception and this is like no other. Remember how odd the tri-jets looked when they went into service? The LAST thing we need is another boring twin and this is one of the most distinctive looking aircraft ever built. The head on shots look really dramatic -- that low-slung cockpit makes it look like it's got brains to burn!

trijets are always great to look at and always have been, this plane just looks totally disproportioned and downright stupid, look at the nose, its just bizarre to say the least! i'm neither boeing or airbus, give me a douglas trijet anyday, but the A380 in my eyes will never be appealing.

I used to think the same, but it's growing on me. I think that it is looking really special now, especially seeing it along with it's smaller sister, the 346 - there's a real "family" feeling now.

I like it, and I can't wait to see one in the flesh coming in to LHR. I wonder if they've sent a sales brochure to BA yet?  Wink

I love all kind of Airplane. There are many aircraft that don’t look aesthetically but that I consider real beauties. Aircraft are great not because of their looks but for what they can do.

People that criticize a new aircraft because of their looks are not real aviation enthusiasts like me.

The A380 is a beauty whatever its shape or form!

It may not have the classic elegance of the A330-200 (but what does, eh?), but the top photo just illustrates to me how "IMPRESSIVE" this aircraft is to see, in its natural environment.
I also seriously suspect that no photographs will do justice to the "in-the-flesh" experience. "WOW" indeed.

Whatever the arguments on the site regarding the merits or otherwise of the A380, I'm glad Airbus have built it.

Braybuddy hit it on the head - it's one of the most distinctive aircraft I will ever see.

Now imagine the -900..............

I think she's a fabulous engineering achievement, and as an Englishman, I am very proud that my country has contributed in producing such a beauty ! Yes, BEAUTY !!! I feel sorry for those on this sight who can't see and appreciate what has been built by Airbus and the league of nations envolved in the project, but instead prefer to criticize how ugly or how fat she is. Most of them are just jealous, because it hasn't a Boeing label on it !

The new Photographs are terrific, and with every passing day my excitment increases, as we near V1 Rotate !!!!!!

So my prediction for what it's worth is she will make her first flight before April 20th !

Or maybe it's just their opinion...From the start, I did not like the look of it, but I have also to admit that it grew a little bit on me, especially when I saw it for real.

Enough has been said about its looks anyway.

I wish you guys had access to the other pictures, there are some shots of the cockpit (with loads of special test stuff), and the cabin.

There's always going to be naysayers. No matter who builds it, or what it looks like, some people will not be impressed. That is their right. We don't have to agree with it, but we also shouldn't slam it.

Now, as for someone whose spouse works for Boeing, I can say with all honesty...OH MY!!!! I'm drooling with anticipation at the thought of seeing this beauty on final approach to LAX. Standing at the park across from the In & Out Burger and having her fly overhead is going to be AWESOME!!!

I think the 900 looks BEAUTIFUL! It's better proportioned than the basic version. However, what impresses me the most about either version of the plane are the wings. Now those are a real engineering marvel and look absolutely elegant; downright sexy!
