Airbus A380 In DXB (MSN002)

Thu Nov 22, 2012 7:19 am

Yesterday I saw MSN002 landing in DXB around 14:10 local time.
Is it something to do with testing or is it EK issue

Hi,

MSN002 is in storage at Toulouse.
According to flighradar24.com, MSN004 (F-WWDD) went to DXB as AIB401 yesterday at that time.

This might well have to do with actually trying to sell MSN002 to someone...
