Remember, although bigger than the 747, the A380 is nothing new as far as size. The C-5, AN
-124, and AN
-225 have been flying for a long time. The A380 will only look much larger from above, when the full wingspan can be viewed. Apart from that (although the upper deck will obviously make her look bigger), the A380 vs. 747 will not be as dramatic as in that picture, I don't think.
