Well I don't know how many off you have seen this, but there is a new image of the A380.

It is MSN006 F-WWSC

http://www.planepictures.net/netshow.php?id=422951

Still no where near finished yet.

Oh goody, another A380 picture.

Sorry to sound critical or negative, but are we going to see a new thread created every single time a new photo of the A380 is released? Genuine question.

Personaly, I think its a bit much

Well if the other threads were not achieved, I would add to that.

But still there are other pointless threads on the forums.

Although irrelevant to this particular thread, I do agree.

But every single time a new picture of the A380 is available, someone gets excited and posts a "WOW look at this" thread or "Incredible that"

The A380 is a fine craft to be sure, but lets not go into overkill!

If you don't like a thread; why click on it, read it, reply to it, and most likely check it again for replies? Plenty of threads going at once.



On topic: I like the Rudolph nose, one thing I don't like about the A340 and A380 is how messy the landing gear looks, 747 as well I guess for that matter. The 777 is clutter free in that department.

I asked a question and expressed an opinion. Two fundamental reasons fora exist, right?

And just as you want to express your opinion, a person can express their want to start a thread on a picture. Just like I may choose to ignore your comments you can ignore this topic.

Although I rarely find myself ignoring your comments cause I'm usually in agreement; maybe just not on this occasion.

But we must excercise a level of common sense. Whats the logic in having many threads on the same subject when one or two will do fine, just add to them when something new appears. That's perhaps a better idea, again IMO.

Common sense is the point, how many times have we tried to get people to stop posting "NWA DC-9" or "Dirty AF planes" etc. No matter how hard you try its going to happen. As many topics there are saying "what's up with the NWA DC-9's" there are 2x as many topics about "No more repeating posts". I just decide to ignore them because its as hopeless as the war on drugs.

Maybe if the thread was about something relating to SQ's A380's more than just a plain photo of one then GARPD wouldn't have an issue. I can see where he is coming from but I also do appreciate seeing this photo.

Maybe something like the Peter Max thread should be implemented in the future.

You have a point there and I agree. Nowadays the mods simply "trim" these useless threads or merge them. Perhaps I should request similar treatment for this subject in stead

Thanks for the photo, although the thread name is a bit misleading: should be singular cf. plural. I expected a whole insider-shot slideshow when I clicked on it..  Sad

I just have a question that is in my mind for a while:
Why is that the new Airbus models always look with different kind of greens? I mean, isn´t the fuselage made of the same material? Why do they paint the different sections in different green tones ?

The different greens indicate where the parts came from. Each part thats a different colour came from a different factory, so you can identify just how diverse an A380 actually is (you could probably do this with most modern aircraft if there were any pictures).

The green is a protective coating on the aluminium.

I would start another threat..like " Why Airbus made an aircraft with such a horrible nose "

If you look at the bird without seeing the nose, it is certainly interesting, beautiful, but that nose...Just makes me hate the plane.

On a positive note I have allways been excited to see these beautiful super jumbos roll out. To me any new A380 rolling out is news. I personally love it when people share with us new photos of the A380. Especially since I have reading about the the A380 since 1997.

i expect to be checking out all threads that are relatd to new 380's untill aircraft MSN 025..

The question for everyone is how long will it be untill a new A380 rolling out would not be news anymore?
