hmm, it could work:

Boeing's technical superiority, Airbus' "persuasive" marketing using both the EU and US governments.... whoa!  Nuts

Beautiful pic, beautiful post, beautiful message.

Chill out A/B fanatics, they're all beautiful machines.

Just look at that pic...they match up rather well, don't they? Hybrid vigor is a good thing...

Before I enlarged the pic I really thought my eyes were playing a game with me... A 747 with an A340 tail, that can not be true at all!
If anybody has enough cash we could get an old 747 and an A340 and see if the Boeing would fly with the Airbus's wing and engines...

LOL, yeah, I was thinking, it's fake, so why is it on a.net as fake pictures are not accepted? Then a moment later I realised it's actually the A340 & 747 side by side!!

Superb shot! Takes skill to get the timing right. One of the best pictures I’ve ever seen on a.net (and that is saying volumes, considering there are so many great pictures in the database).  Smile
