Hello fellows.

I'm just looking at the pics of A380 s/n 004 and it's an optical illusion or he have the registration F-WWDO?
The spotters say it's F-WWDD but it seams to me that is F-WWDO...

Sorry but it does.



There is one problem with airbus. Though their products are engineering marvels they lack passion, completely.

Try to save the pic and magnify it in any editor. You'll probably see DO.

I did exactly that, and it supports the "DO" observation. Take a look at this other pic: this one looks like it ends in an "O" also. Fun stuff!

How are you able to see that? The Jettison is covering it all up.

It looks like a D to me, an optical trick played by the vertical stab might make it look like an "O".

Oh what a mystery thing. For me it looks like DO but DD would make more sense for the Airbus Regs. Hope we can get behind this.

On most of the photos it looks like WWDO, but this closeup makes it obvious that it is WWDD:
