I have never heard about A360. There in nothing like that on Airbus.com which leads me to suggestion that this is dirty cheat.
If it is confirmed, people doing this should be banned and never uploded again.
If I am wrong - appologize.

sigh.........

haven't anyone on this site heard of cynisism?????? Look at the real posting, it says A320, and if you'd just take a closer look, you'll see its just a L1011 parked behind the A320.....

Goodmorning!

ps, i've scanned the damn slide and it is my hands right now, and i tell ya, its not a cheat...!

So it seems that foto is real but description false to increase views number - I noticed that beacause it is almost the most popular of 24h while other shots of this A320 had usually around 100 view.
It is not very nice method.

Nope, I think people probably viewed it because it really does look like a tristar/A320 hybrid as a thumbnail..

And once again Dan hits the spot.

Come on Danny (other one), you are the only person who doesn't like the shot, and frankly I don't think you get the point.

And the fact that there are 2 threads (here & in Civ Av) about this photograph probably attracts a few hits!

Danny, it's a highly unusual photograph. People want to see it for its own sake, not for its caption.

I like the shot but not misleading description
"It's the brand new Airbus A360! I didn't even notice this until I got my slides back"

oh come one, who would believe it is actually an A360?

As an frequent A.net user (which I'm sure you are) you should know better,
can't you have a laugh once in a while. Is it really so terrible for you that people view my picture? Didn't you enjoy it a tiny bit Smile?

Yeah , I bet there were a lot of confused people around, and also many who didn't get the joke Smile, and didn't bother to look at the actual type A320-231.
That should have gave it away.

You wouldn't believe how many emails I got saying "there's no such thing as an A360" or "this is just a photoshop fake" (hate that one). Only when I explained it, people went like "oh great shot" or similar comments Smile

btw, I hope it didn't cause any hassle for you Andrew.
