I heard that the A3XX's wings will be transported on top of an A340.How is it done and what model A340 is it?

Actually, I remember hearing about that too. If built, the wings would be transported on top of a A340-300, a la the Space Shuttle on NASA's 747. The reason is the A3XX's wings would be too long to fit inside the Beluga Super Transport.

Hi all

Airbus has a nice A3xx video on it's website for downloading.

The most feasible solution:

Transporting the wings by train to the british coast, then by cargo ship to the french coast or directly to Hamburg (where the A319 and A321 is being built).
From the french coast they would use a train to Toulouse, too.

But it depends on where the A3XX will have its final assembly.

Latest news are that they want to have the final assembly done in Toulouse but all the interior works done in Hamburg.

Ah, the return of the biplane! Retro airliners? Groovy! Seriously, wouldn't it be cool if they flew it attached along the wings and not the fuselage? Is that the plan?
