This is excellent news. Finally the A380 is starting to get some momentum back.

I don't know if momentum is the right word (yet), but it is definitely a positive for the program. Hopefully these components are complete, and not intended to be "rigged" during final assembly (as I believe some previous A380s were, and the first few 787s will be).

I think May was the last one, so there's been a 3 or 4 month gap
