Any Pics Of The 2nd A380?

Wed May 11, 2005 3:41 pm

How come there haven't been any photos of the second A380 yet?

When is it due to fly?

The second A380 to fly will be MSN004 , in the first week of June.
The third will be MSN002 , in the second week of June.
MSN007 in the third week of July.
MSN009 (First plane with GP7200 engines) at the beginning of November.

These 4 frames + F-WWOW will do 2500 flight test hours , before the first delivery to SQ.

MSN002 will go to Hamburg in June to be outfitted , then will fly again at the beginning of December.
MSN007 will go to hamburg in July also to be outfitted and will fly again in the second week of February 2006.

Will different crews take the job or it'll be the same test crew Airbus chose to make the 380s maiden flight?

Btw, what's the expected thrust of the GP7200 engines?

It would be nifty if it did, B742!! The 777 test programme comes to mind... testing in the then-new CX colors and the BA Landor scheme... Ahhh... ^__^

One of them I think will at least have the SQ tail logo. I saw on SQ's site the press image of a fully painted v-stab being fitted to an A380.

MSN 2 is the 3rd Airbus A380? Is that possible?

Hi MD11Junkie,

As best as I know, this info is accurate. Maybe knoxibus or somebody else from the Airbus factory can correct me?!

As I said, I am open to correction.  Wink
