What Is This Next To The A380?

Mon Oct 24, 2005 4:24 am

Hey everyone! Ok, in the picture, next to the A380 in the lower left, next to the airstairs on the forward right door, there is a little trailer thing. It is contoured to the fuselage. What is it?

It's just what you said... a 'little trailer thing.' I'm sure it's just were the Avionics Installers are working out of.

Actually, thats the rubber left from the taxiing tests. In an earlier post in this forum, there are pictures of the plane making those marks.
