Awesome photo Andrew! And indeed a nice size comparison between the 747-400 and the A380...

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 26, 2009:
On any day, I'd pick the A300, A320, A330... over B757, 767 737... But, when it comes to "the big gals" I think B747 puts the A380 in her pocket. Just my opinion.

A visitor from Chile posted Fri October 23, 2009:
Maybe the A380 is modern, but the 747 is so much prettier!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Great photo! I still think the queen looks way better!

A visitor from South Africa posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Nice photo! The A380 still looks like a tick to me...as for the length difference...the 747 is closer than the A380...so she just looks a lot longer.

A visitor from United States posted Thu October 8, 2009:
I don't want to see the 747 go....... As great as you all may feel the a380 is, it just feels bad that no one cares about the purpose for which the a380 was built.....to replace the 747.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Thu October 8, 2009:
The 747 looks longer!!
both aircraft rocks..

Theres not much of a difference in size...

A visitor from France posted Mon August 3, 2009:
380's engines are huge compared with the 747's one...

A visitor from France posted Thu July 9, 2009:
Although I am in awe of the mighty 380 I cannot help but the think the boeing looks better.....

A visitor from - posted Tue June 9, 2009:
MUAH !!! (kiss) :)

To a previous commentator

I think the Boeing 747 , being more angular - looks 'muscular' , and therefore masculine, while the Airbus , being rounded, or smoother seems to have a feminine aesthetic.

A visitor from - posted Mon May 25, 2009:
Wonderful picture! I still like the 747 more... :)

A visitor from - posted Wed May 20, 2009:
People can now stop the B747-A380 wars. Just look at them; they're doing the kiss-and-make-up! ;)

Seriously, it's a really nice picture. So far, the 380 looks best with the Qantas theme. And to me, it's the 747 that looks masculine.

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed May 20, 2009:
Mine is bigger than yours!

A visitor from - posted Sun May 10, 2009:
The 747 looks feminine with its curves and the the A380 with its masculinity from its sheer size. lol

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu April 30, 2009:
Woooowww... this picture is very beautiful!!! Congratulations!!!

A visitor from India posted Thu April 30, 2009:
Look at the difference in wing flex

A visitor from - posted Wed April 29, 2009:
I'm so curious to see how their baby looks like!

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 29, 2009:
The 747 wins the beauty contest every time in my book, however this picture really shows the size of the 380's wing. MASSIVE. You can tell it is designed to carry an even larger load than the current design. This is the first photo I have seen with the two of them side by side. Thanks!

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 29, 2009:
The 747 still looks longer than the A380

A visitor from Germany posted Wed April 29, 2009:
Just married!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 28, 2009:
The A380 is so much more pleasing on the eye...........this photo just reiterates that fact even more!

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 28, 2009:
747 wins in style, a380 wins in size and technology.

A visitor from - posted Tue April 28, 2009:
The 380 is certainly impressive, but this shot beautifully shows how the 747 is timelessly elegant. It always strikes me that the 380 is rather stubby... Just too short for its height, and with a cockpit slightly too low so that the "forehead" is overdeveloped. Perhaps a stretched version will change the visual balance a bit.

A visitor from - posted Tue April 28, 2009:
Great shot!! always spot off of the 24's but still waiting for my chance to see that monster take off or land.

A visitor from - posted Tue April 28, 2009:
''Face to Face'' Very nice photo!

A visitor from - posted Tue April 28, 2009:
Qualitiy shot! Very nice zhis one, and dont forget, this is only the a380-800! Thanks for this nice comparison

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 28, 2009:
This photo is in one word - awesome! And definitely a good size comparison. I live just north of the 24's, but have yet to see the A380 land/take off. Thanks for a exquiste photo Andrew!

This photo is great because it shows the difference between the a380 and b747 which I have been wanting to see.

A visitor from Colombia posted Tue April 28, 2009:
Beautiful sight, two great aircraft in one landscape, the view is one of the most beautiful.
Thank you.

A visitor from - posted Tue April 28, 2009:
Great shot comparing the size of these two beasties! The A-380 is impressive, but the 747 is much better looking. Thanks for posting this.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 28, 2009:
Beautiful face to face aircrafts but I see only one queen of the sky.

Style vs Efficiency

747 is the beauty queen, 380 is the weight queen.
