Airbus Truck " A320 On Board "

Sat Jan 27, 2007 1:53 am

Hello ,

Today driving from school to my home I saw a Truck of Airbus , with this inscription: " A320 on Board " it was driving to the Barcelona Port.

Do anyone know what they carry on it ? Maybe the Engines ?

It was painted in the Airbus colors .

something like this but with the A320.

Thanks

Ive heard of this truck before! Must carry componants of the A320. The barge/ship that carry major parts for the A380 have 'A380 on board' on their sides.

That is correct EI321.

I have seen one of these trucks before with A380 On Board written on the sides near Oswestry.

CASA is supplying horizontal tailplanes and fuselage skin panels. I presume some of the latter were in the truck.

Parts from Airbus Spain would be my guess.

In BCN? Isn´t CASA near Sevilla? it was driving to the Port ... Maybe some
parts of the US or Canada...

Hi LHstaralliance....
if it was in Germany, it was "probably" the elevators of the VTP (made in Stade)
if it was in Spaine, it was "probably" the HTP elevators (made in Sevilla or Madrid)
Cause the wings+fuselages comes with bigger trucks and the Fin by Beluga...
have a good weekend

Am I missing something here.
Isn't there written on the truck "A380 rudders".
So I guess the truck transport.... A380 rudders.

YEs, he said "It was painted in the Airbus colors .something like this but with the A320.", so the A380 picture was just to illustrate.
