Airbus Disputes A380 Wake Ruling

Wed Dec 14, 2005 3:58 am

Airbus flight-test managers are questioning the validity of data on which the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) based its recommendations to greatly increase separation distances for the A380. Now Airbus wants to make a direct comaprison between the A380 and the 747/777/A340. Could this have something to do with Lufthansa wanting to now look at the 747-8 ?
