Let us hope that the A380 is not in a situation where they have to make an emergency landing on a shorter than required runway. I know they carry extra fuel and c/o fuel dumps when required also. I am sure that they have proven this, but you never know.

Thanks for all the comments and to the people that found it worth while to view my photo, not to mention the screeners who helped me to get this photo right! Besides aviation being my occupation, it is also a hobby where photos are concerned! Looking at planes and taking photos is what got me in the aviation business in the first place! Happy New Year and good hunting! - Wayne C.

Not only Airbus "believes" that, so does also the FAA/BAA/LBA a.s.o. On the A380, engines #1 and #4 have no thrust reversing system installed, it is just not necessary, when you have to be able to stop the ac in every situation without any application of thrust reversing.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon January 2, 2012:
The trip up the 401 to Montreal was well worth it. Congrats on a good capture!

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 1, 2012:
Far as I know, thrust reversers aren't even installed on engines 1 and 4. Just clarifying that it's not just that they weren't used on this landing - they don't even have the option! If they're not necessary, fewer reversers = less weight and less maintenance.


A visitor from France posted Sun January 1, 2012:
There's simply no reverse on 1 & 4 in the A380.
Mainly due to the fact that those engines are above dust/grass/anything that would break the engines.

A visitor from Australia posted Sun January 1, 2012:
As far as i know, A380 pilots only need engines 2 and 3 (inner engines) to reverse because of the massive spoilers and flaps

A visitor from - posted Sun January 1, 2012:
We call it "Translating Cowls" for the thrust reverse. The thrust reverse is not used on the #1 and #4 engines due to FOD that can be ingested by engines or debris thrown/blown on the runway. Airbus believes that the thrust reverse on #2 and #3 engines, with the brakes and spoilers applied, is enough for the a/c to come to a stop/safe taxi speed.

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 1, 2012:
I have a question. how is that the cowling of the engine inside is clearly visible that its coming off but not the one on the outside?
