Hate to add fuel to the fire, but
Here we go:
747-400 A380-100 C-5A
Length 232 ft 240 ft 247 ft
Wingspan 211 ft 262 ft 223 ft
Height 64 ft 79 ft 65 ft
MTOW 875 klb 1235 klb 840 klb
Boeing 747-400 said : "An A380 is smaller than a C5."
As you can see (or CAN you?), the 380 is 40 feet WIDER, 14 ft HIGHER, and 400,000 lbs heavier than a C5. That's almost 50% heavier than a C5, and considerably wider and taller. The C5, granted, is 7 ft longer.
Is it on the basis of 7 feet more of length that you are so certain that the C-5 is bigger than the 380? I hope not, that would be ridiculous. The 380 , judging by these figures, is CONSIDERABLY larger than even a C5, let alone a 747-400. PLease explain why you think otherwise, if you have anything useful to add. I'm not trying to be mean, it just seems to me that your conclusions are absurd, judging from the FACTS. I'd like to hear your reasoning.
Next flight.... who knows.
