Remark Photographer
F-WWEA (cn 009) Close up of the 20 wheels on the main landing gear retracting into the A-380 and the huge wings surface during it's take off at Paris airshow 2007. Strange to see that the flaps are actualy touching the landing gear doors and also visible is that the Flap Track Fairing is bigger under the left wing due the RAT (Ram Air Turbine) placing

It looks very good from the air because you can see it

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat June 14, 2008:
Thank you for the info in your comment! Also a stunning picture.

A visitor from Guatemala posted Sat July 28, 2007:
This photo looks so Heavy!!! That I think my screen is going to broke!!!!

A visitor from Malta posted Sat July 28, 2007:
He is right about the track, the right one is bigger then the left one, You can confurm this by refaring to a front photo of this aircraft ;).

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 24, 2007:
Clearly one track is larger than the other. It is not just perspective. Check reference points on the wing underside to see a difference. Also clearly different hinge config. on the one side...

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon July 23, 2007:
Awesome shot! The left-wing inner canoe is indeed bigger due to the RAT. It has nothing to do with the angle of the picture (which would actually rather have the opposite effect, making the left-wing canoe appear smaller...). 'Wonder though about the flaps' long-term resistance to friction with the landing gear doors...

A visitor from Sweden posted Sun July 22, 2007:
Awsome shot. Look at the little beacon there.. :P

A visitor from Australia posted Sun July 22, 2007:
That's just spectacular... Can't get enough of this photo.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 22, 2007:
Amazing and unique picture and a nice change from the usual ones. This plane is an engineering marvel and this photo illustrates that very well. Just look at all that heavy machinery and now think about this: it *flies*

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 22, 2007:
Actually they are the same size it's just the angle the photo was taken from! How would the gear doors open with flaps 4(Full)

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Sun July 22, 2007:
Great shot chap. you even got the comment about the wheel door touching the flaps right but the size diference of the hydraulics is just an optical illussion. sri

A visitor from France posted Sun July 22, 2007:
Due to budget restrictions, they couldn't afford to equip the right and left wings with the same flap system....... kidding, kidding! It's just a perspective matter. Right after take off, the plane had to do a sharp left turn to stay in the flight pattern restrictions of Le Bourget. This demonstrate even better the maneuverability of this amazing aircraft.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun July 22, 2007:
This is not hydraulics under the left wing, the flap track fairing there houses the ram air turbine. Great shot though!

A visitor from Canada posted Sat July 21, 2007:
It's just a fantastic shot!

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 21, 2007:
Great photo. The longer inboard canoe fairing under the left wing houses the deployable ram-air turbine (RAT)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 21, 2007:
Wow the canoes look a lot bigger on the right side of the pic, nice photo

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 21, 2007:
Very good shot! Nice close up detail of the main landing gear of this huge airliner.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat July 21, 2007:
Interesting observations you made, young Padawan. I wonder what the reasons for these things are?! Hope somebody can help...
