I have just found this picture on PlanePictures.net of MSN5000 (A380 Static Test AC) it is in a right mess and now doesn't even have any landing gear like it did on it's roll out. It is now on metal posts.

What is going to happen to MSN5000?

And why does it have 'Pamela A380' written on the side?

I'd imagine that 'PAMELA' would be an acronym for something or other. The a/c does look a right state, I imagine the airframe was put through quite a lot of stress during testing, so I guess it would remain as a static test bed with Airbus.
