A380 Airframe Sections On Their Way To Toulouse

Sat Mar 27, 2004 10:35 am

Major fuselage sections of the A380 now are on their way to Toulouse. The rear fuselage is coming by boat from Germany to France , and the front sections will arrive north of Bordeaux from St Nazaire by boat too. I'm anxious to see these parts on the Gironde river in Bordeaux, before they reach the road section of their journey to Toulouse!
Too bad this event is scheduled in the middle of next week; will be at work... I'd have been happy to take pics and post them!
Anyway, here are links to pics from the Airbus site and from a local newspaper.

Thanks for the links Ajet. It's a shame you'll be at work - it sure would be great to see some more photos, especially of that front section.

By the way, there's some more pics of these sections in http://www.airliners.net/discussions/general_aviation/read.main/1477256/
