A visitor from - posted Mon March 16, 2015:
The horizontal stabilizer looks too massive. What's with that? Anyone know? Also there are four little doors open on the inboard area of the wing skin just under the landing lights. Two on each side. What are those?

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 23, 2012:
You feel the power and awe at this beast flying towards you , excellent angle and detail. What are those little tabs or doors (1 pair below each wing close to the root) , something not readily noticed in other pictures .
Also this pic clearly shows the flaps are not slotted [as in the 747]. Is that because they are not fully extended ?

A visitor from Ireland posted Mon April 2, 2012:
This really captures the plane's girth. It reminds me of NASA's Space Shuttle.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 2, 2012:
Definitely an unique angle shot! Can't they at least clean it up if they are going to use it as a showcase in an airshow?

Makes Boeings X-32 look beautiful.

A visitor from - posted Fri March 2, 2012:
Tahnks for sharing. Especially love the reflections of the wing on the fuselage.

A visitor from France posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Wow sexy.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 1, 2012:
I agree with the others that this is a gorgeous shot from a unique angle. Not sure about the beer gut remark, to me it looks more like the A380 has "man boobs."

A visitor from - posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Though it may be caused by the reflection from the sun, the left wing criese does not seem to flow like the right wing does.

A visitor from - posted Thu March 1, 2012:
I am wondering what is the aerodynamic quality of this plane.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Kudos Duncan! Definitely one of the best A380 photos. Excellent perspective of the Flying Behemoth.


A visitor from - posted Thu March 1, 2012:
I don't find her beautiful very often, but at this angle she is hulking and massive and oh so graceful.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Great capture of this amazing machine, very unique perspective but still not one that makes it aesthetically pleasing to my eye...Still waiting

A visitor from France posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Really beautiful picture...
It perfectly shows how imposing it is.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Great capture, perfectly demonstrates the enormousness of this amazing bird. I wish I could rate it 380 ★s!


A visitor from Luxembourg posted Thu March 1, 2012:
It looks so massive! And the light plays a big part in the quality of that shot. Well done sir.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Great angle and crop, and awesome lighting. Even looks a bit intimidating...might even qualify as sexy. 5-STAR image!

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 1, 2012:
Looks like a beer gut to me

Amazing angle, best I've seen of the A380
