I agree that I also don't have a idea of the size of the A380. It looks like a short aircraft but that's probably because of the doubledeck fuselage. The wings, like other have said before, are enormous and comparitively much bigger than the aircraft. That will also have to do with the size of the aircraft. The wings need to give this bird a lot of lift, maybe that explains the wingsize as well.
I'm still trying to figure out whether I should go to TLS
at the roll-out ceremony in January or wait for the first flight in March. If it rains a lot (or heavy rain) on the roll-out day, the aircraft will probably not be rolled-out of the factory for long or will it? How long do you think the A380 will be out in the open on the roll-out ceremony? On its first flight, well, that's logical, it must go out to take off whether it's a rainy day or not
Will the A380 be at next year's Paris Air Show in Le Bourget? I can imagine it won't be there because of the certification process. It will have to do a lot of proving tests especially in the first few months (or first year). Airbus may not be to afford the A380 just sitting there at the show when it can make more hours flying for the certification. But then again, it will be a very good marketing move to display the A380 at this major air show and knowing Airbus, they always like to show off their aircraft. The A380 will certainly not be an exception for them.
Anyway, I'm very excited to see it personally
