 I was just woundering, how long does it take, to fully fuel an Airbus A380? If there any misspelled words, please for give me, but my spelling check was not working.

Assuming 4 nozzles at 40 psi with a 261200 L uplift...48 minutes according to Airbus.

That would be from zero to full, most aircraft land with fuel still in their tanks, and even on their longest routes (LAX-MEL) the A380 is not being filled to the top.

An A380 holds 323546 L of fuel...how is a 261200 L uplift going from zero to full?
