I searched but did not find a thread regarding this, so, mods, if this is a duplicate post, please forgive me.

Whilst glancing through the popular photos of the day, I looked at the one of the A380 production ramp While there are three planes whose new owners I can determine (AF, LH, and SQ), I can't figure out the fourth one, the one in the bottom of the photo.

Anyone have any idea as to who will own this big bird when it's finished?

SQ. Can you see the logo on the tail...?

Looks like another SQ aircraft to me - there's a bit of reflection on the fin paint, but that's my vote.

I believe it is SQ. I believe you can make out the bird, but just barely.


Little airports with the big jets are the best!! Floyd

I thought it was SQ at first, too, but look at the triangular piece missing on the bottom of the logo, plus, it looks like the top of the logo goes higher up on the tail than the SQ logo does on the plane opposite it.

It sorta favors QF, but only sorta...

Delta   

Kidding aside, definitely SQ - the reflection just obscures the logo somewhat.

I agree, this is definitely a new SQ bird.

Wow, I need to get my eyes checked.   
Now that I look at it, reflections on the tail were messing with me. Does indeed look like an SQ bird...

It's an SQ bird for sure but on a side note and to avoid the need to start a new thread has anyone any idea when we are going to see the first A380 in a special livery we now have operators from OneWorld, Star and SkyTeam, but no craft in a Alliance livery, or what about a special livery from Qantas now that would be something to see, just think of all the spotters that will be out waiting for that to arrive at LAX, LHR etc.

Any other special liveries that anyone would like to see

MWH@CVT though closer to LCY at the moment



Must think up a new one soon, slow moving brain trying to get into gear ;)

I believe A380s are too rare a commodity to get alliance colours ?

It seems pretty obvious that it's exactly the same tail as the other SQ A380

It seems pretty obvious that the thread starter has known that for at least 21 hours already.

I think they still generate enough general interest within the travelling public to mean that airlines will only want their own liveries on the A380 - effectively giant billboards.
