A3XX Gets Its Picture In Time Magazine

Tue Mar 07, 2000 1:44 pm

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.

Just Checked Airbus' Site

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.

VA, Concorde

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.
