Is This An A380 Wing?

I was surfing over the A-net and found this picture. It says that is the wing of a Singapore Airlines A380, however it looks too small for me and besides that the wing fence is not pinted like all the A380 wingtip belonging to Singapore Airlines.

For me this is an A320 wing.

This is the picture:

Hello,

Read the comments: he's talking about the SIA A380 that you can spot on the ground if you have good eyes.

Isn't the photographer saying that the A380 is on the ground somewhere at LHR - they're going to MCR so I'm sure that it can't be actually a flight on an A380

The caption says he is on a BMI flight and he is trying to take a picture of the SQ A380 which is still down below at a gate.

So I'd say yes, it is a wing of an A320... but a BMI A320.

Additionally, he says he's on a BD flight, and they haven't got, or even ordered, any A388s.  Smile. However, I agree that the caption of the pic is misleading...

I did not noticed it was an A380. And yes I missunderstood the caption.
'The A380 is next to the 747.........."

Thanks.

I don't blame you, the photographer was a tad optimistic in choosing 'A380' as the subject aircraft of this shot... It took me a good 2 minutes to find where the 'portrayed' airplane was on the shot.

He was presumably very excited to have just flown on it.

Having seen this picture without the comment, I honestly wouldn't have believed ever that it was a portrait of -SKB. Mind you, hadn't the photographer been on the said plane, he would never have known the registration from up there!

Yet, nice picture.

Has the caption been changed? Because I don't find it misleading at all.

Probably seeking additional hits for his photo.  Yeah sure

Firstly i dont think the Caption is misleading,i was just wondering how many people could see the A380 that i had flown on from Singapore.When i was uploading i had to choose a registration,so i chose the plane that i had flown on earlier,at the time i didnt know what the reg was of the BMI A319 i was on.Since ive uploaded,a member of the editorial team must have done some research and found out which plane operated my flight on that day.
Also the reg is incorrect and i have passed on the correct info,it shall be updated in time,i flew out on SKB and returned on SKC.
Finally,many thanks to the kind comments,i was straining my neck to get that picture but it was worth the effort !!

Follow the angle of the red paint on the QF bird, and it'll point directly at the A380. It's the first one facing left, and is next to a TG 744 in OC on its left and an IB A320 on its rear-right.

Te thread starter is correct, I thought the same when I first saw the picture on A.net but you could clearly see the SQ A380 taxiing to the runway thus I figured that's what he meant.

Actually, i took a look at the photo the day it was placed on the top photos of the day and the section for "Aircraft" actually said Singapore airlines and A380 but it appears the photographer has changed the photo info.

QF - right airline and right aircraft, SQ on the other hand, right airline, but wrong aircraft - the one behind the BD wing is actually a 777.

the SQ A380 is actually parked at a gate,

in any event, it's a great picture!!!

Maybe LH will increase their order and allocate a couple to BD for thier flights to India?


25 AustrianZRH : Sorry, flush of stupidity on my side . Of course, I meant the title appearing at the top of the window, i.e., just the A380-841 picture. After readin
