On page B22 of the Time magazine of March 13, 2000, the upper-right margin space is occupied with the most photo-realistic computer generation of the new superjumbo I've seen yet. The shot, about 2.5" tall and 5" long, is of the A3XX-100 (so labeled, not just 'A3XX') taken almost head-on, slightly off to it's right side, facing it. The generation includes fan blades and all of the various fuselage accesories that protrude from the nose area. It is flying above a sea of delicate white clouds, but that's predictable - to make it look nice. The photo's caption reads: FLYING HIGH: Airbus outsold Boeing last year, and the A3XX could trump the 747 jumbo. Interpret that as you will.

No, Airbus still only has the 2 Comp.Gen. images they've had for ages. I'm checking other resources now (Time, etc.).

I can't find the picture anywhere (or any other pictures), so if anyone has any suggestions, besides Airbus' photo archive, please comment.

Thought this might help in locating the piece and pictures.

Sorry about that, it's been an awfully long day!

VA: Yeah, that's the picture, but that's an awefully small version of it. Y'know what I'd like: I'd like access to these gazillions of pictures that companies make and never get around to releasing for US! It's not in the photo archive at , which is annoying, and there are at least three other A3XX pic.s I've seen that aren't to be found there either.

Concorde: Yeah, the pic. is on 22, the article starts on 15.
