"Beauty and the Beast" having a close encounter at EZE. The Grupo Marsans, owner of Aerolineas Argentinas and Air Comet, placed an order for 4 A380s; 2 for AR and 2 for Air Comet. The A380 will be use mainly in the EZE-MAD route, replacing the 747s, which will always be the "Queen of the Skies".

"beauty and the beast"? Which one is the beauty? :P I think I know the answer. Awesome picture! I love the 747, and it's nice to see it together with an A380

A historical moment for sure. It will be sad to say goodbye to both always classic 742 and 742.

Great shot. Whether I do like the A380 I have to agree. The B747 will always be the Queen. I do not see any other future aircraft will take this title.

The A380 just looks so.. Frumpy in this picture, compared the 747.

Each has it's individual charm, but the 747.. It's still more streamlined to me.

Two jumbos together - The 747 is still the most beautiful aircraft.

The B747 is and will be the Queen of the sky, no doubt. she is the beast. The A380, being the beauty, is the new "EMPRESS" of the sky. And Empress will always trump the Queen.

Love the last part of your comment, so true. I hope the 747's are around long enough for me to get to fly on one.

I could not agree more. The 747 will always be the queen of the skies and the 787 will always be the beast of the skies.

Lovely shot mate. But I have to say the 747 makes the a380 look hideous! The 747 is the jumbojet, I'd call the a380 the is chubby.

Long life to the 747!!! It was, is, and will be the QUEEN OF THE SKIES and the greatest airliner of all the times!

I've always had this theory, if the A380 made its nose sharper and made the cockpit higher, it would look more elegant.

Do you think, if they get closer, they'll collapse into each other by the weight of their own gravities and super nova? I'm pretty sure I do.

The 747 look's better and it should because it does'nt have 2 decks.747 may be the beauty but the A380 is the BEAST.

Hmmmm.....one man's garbage is another man's treasure. Sure the A380 is not as "sleek" looking (from a purely aesthetic view anyway...the aerodynamics are another story altogether ^_^)...one could argue the 747s hump is more hunchback of notre dame than queen of the skies. And you have to admit the A380s gullwings are quite spectacular

The 747 just needs a quick update (wich is the 748i, already in the works), and when it rolls out, it'll be the queen and the beast!
