This excellent photo clearly demonstrates the huge diameter of the A380's engines. About the width of a B737 and a truly remarkable piece of engineering!

Surely a lot of those men fit into that enormous engine. I've hears somewhere that one of those A380 engines is as big as the fuselage of a 767!!! :O

Very impressive photo, i like it!
It is a huge engine, but that man on the picture looks slightly out of proportion, compared to other photos on the net. Either he's quite short, or, most probably, he's standing behind the engine and hence further away from the photographer then the engine.
I wonder if anyone can explain to me what he's doing with that orange thing in his hand.

WoW ! (That man is definetely a few metres behind that engine as you can see him mirrored in the back side of the wing and on the edge of the shadow)
Thank You for that pic!

Very nice pic! And guys don't think wrong about this guy hehe, I know him very well, he's the Officer of DIA Planning Section, so prob he's trying to on planning something for the A380, and that thing what he's holding is a Pad which used by Marshallers. Not sure but I guess there is someone else on the otherside and they're giving signals to each other.

Well, the person that is in the pic is behind the engine. The GP7200 has a diameter of 124 inches, which is about 10 feet. I measured the mans height and he will fit 3 times from edge to edge to the outside of the engine. So, this man is either 3"4" or is standing pretty far behind the engine. Or, I guess he could be an Oompa Loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. But still great photo!!!

This is a great shot! To comment on the person who posted on Sat, Jan 28, this is a Trent 900 by Rolls Royce which has a fan diameter of 116 inches, not a GP7200. Also fan tip diameters measure from tip of a blade on one edge to the tip of a blade on the opposite side of the fan, not from the edge of the cowling.. duh.

Very nice picture and that guy holding the pad is not so far away, just look to shadows and reflections of the wing, he's standing just behind the wing (i think). Would be nice to fly one like this... Thanks for this great picture!

Yes it's a huge engine...but remember that the man is standing behind it which throws off the perspective.

They ARE huge engines, But sadly not the biggest I live in Uganda in Africa and going through Heathrow in London I saw the A380 and the Boeing 777 and the 777 engines were bigger! Boeing wins again!!!

This man could stand in there and somebody could sit on his shoulders and they still wouldn't reache the upper edge of the engine. This is what I call massive power! The B777-300 and the A380 rule the skies.

Last poster: Airbus doesen't make these engines either.. Rolls Royce does. There also is another engine choice, the Engine Alliance (GE & PW) GW7200.

Great shot of man vs machine, 5 stars.

Really nice photo! However the man is standing quite a ways behind the engine leading to an optical illusion. The engines are big but not -that- big.
