As far as I know there are dozens of "air buses" worldwide there is certainly one in Edinburgh as well.

The funny thing is that the picture on the Airbus in that link is a VS B747 and not a VS A346. I guess no one but an aviation enthusiast would notice.

When I saw the thread title, the first thing I thought of was the bus service to/from LHR.

The University of Michigan provides a discount bus ride to the airport for its students during holidays called the Airbus. It appears this is a worldwide pandemic that must be stopped before it's too late!

There is a great picture floating around of the prototype 747SR (intended for Japanese domestic markets).

Flying over Mt. Saint Helens prior to May, 1980 (and the subsequent eruption that took off 2000 feet of the mountain) is the 747SR with the titles "Super AirBus".

Certainly a picture that could NEVER be duplicated today!!

The funny thing is that "Airbus" used to be a generic name referring to all wide-body aircraft when they were first being developed and produced in the late 1960's/early 1970s. These were of course the B747, the DC-10, and the L-1011, and the actual Airbus A300/B2B4.

When these manufacturers were competing for orders from airlines the process was widely called the "airbus sweepstakes" and other such names.

Oh and to add to my last post when I was growing up in Russia in the 80's they would call any Soviet-made long range airliner an "aerobus," which is the russian version of the "airbus" name. It was a common nickname for Il-62's and Il-86's and I remember my parents telling me about these "aerobuses" when I would fly on them.

Gee, I'm glad I read through all the posts. When I saw the first pic I though for sure it was the first image of the "redesigned" A350.  rotfl
