I've done a quick search of the photos on A.net and I have not been able to find a good picture that has both the 747 and the A380 in it. I'm hoping to see one so that I may be able to get some perspective on how large the A380 is. By any chance, does anyone know where I can find a picture like that?
On a side note, I wonder if Airbus has gone out of it's way to prevent the opportunity to have such a picture taken?

Quoting Albird87 (Reply 4): Mate you must not be able to read but he did ask for a picture of an A380 and a 747 TOGETHER!! as much as your photo my be a shot of the big plane it aint what he asked for!
I thought the same thing, however, halfway down the page I found what I was looking for. NW748i posted a shot that has both aircraft on the tarmac together. However, the angle of the shot creates a perspective that almost makes the 747 look bigger. So far the pic that Keesje posted in reply 2 does the trick. It truly illustrates the size difference in the wing and engines.
I look forward to an aerial shot that shows both aircraft on the tarmac. That will really make it the difference obvious.
Thanks for the posts folks, they have been quite helpful.
