Maybe so, but how about this one? A380 slide deployment.

Sorry, I searched and didn't see anything. Nice slide deployment, though.

This question must have been asked a million times aswell then Ikramerica, so if you wouldnt mind answering;

Why was F-WWOW painted with only two engines attached, as can be clearly seen in the scenes in the paint-shop. The o/b engine on the right wing, and the i/b engine on the left wing are missing until the aircraft is finally seen rolling out of the hanger at the end

I don't remember any comment being made about this last year...

Anybody have any ideas...???

That one has been posted about 3 million times.  duck  Well, I mean it has been posted at least once. Nevertheless, I find this video especially amusing because of what the camera man says. There is some swearing in it, but he basically said: "Oh...the slide got stuck! All passengers would be burning by now...hahaha." Some dark humor.

Nothing funnier than Germans talking about people burning to death...

Thats a cool video, do they have to transport the parts like that for everyone one they build or was that just for the first one.

I think you have to have a bit of humour during testing, no matter what happens. Otherwise you'd go mad from the pressure.

All major assemblies are transported that way. Small ones in the Beluga and the rest by Ro-Ro, barge and finally lorry.
