Well yeah, in fact when is someone going to take a picture of it with all its engines and stuff on?!

Maybe we have to wait another 6 months to see this A380?  tongue 

Just kidding! Should be sometime next week though, right?
It's a beautiful night to fly like a phoenix...

Can't wait to see photos of the two of them flying in formation. People (OK, Americans) are saying Airbus are in trouble etc etc but you gotta hand it to them, they're really going for it. Two A380s! And one day in the not too distant future, there'll be hundreds of the damn things.

Hi all.

Due to being off work due to injury (Work for Airbus) I'm not getting the normal amount of info. Alot of which I can't sadly make public when I am working.

But has anyone heard anything or seen anything about the 2nd A380. I am led to believe that this aircraft is going to painted in SQ livery, but that is all I know.

I heard that the first A380 to wear a carriers livery would fly in Emirates colors for the DXB air show.

I would it will be the SQ livery, as there is already a vertical stabaliser shipped to Toulouse in SQ colours... I would imagine the rest of the plane would be SQ too...

F-WXXL (msn 2) was structuraly complete well before the SQ tail was delivered to Toulouse. The SQ tail will got to the first SQ A380 delivery. F-WXXL will be delivered to Etihad when testing finished.

I'm just wondering what's happened to F-WXXL. It look pretty well advanced in it's build at christmas but 6 months later we haven't seen nor heard anything about it.
