The A380 and B777-300ER. The only thing could be better in the picture is if we can have the Emirates A380 soon! Note the TV Ch7 helicopter low hovering over the A380!! [Nikon D2x]

This Picture is Awesome!! All i Want to know about it is where exactly you found and advantage point like this! It is great how you got both planes central. one question is the emirates 777 ER just landed or is it also taxiing like the A380?

Concerning that the T7 is farer away from the camera than the A380, the big one looks smaller than the B777.

I am kinda surprised with this picture because the 380 doesn't look big at all compared to the 777. Nice timing tough

The best Airbus and 1 of the best Boeings. It's a shame that it wasn't the Emirates A380 in the background!

The thing said that the 380 looks smaller than the T7 being cuz it's farther from the cam is dead-wrong! Things close to the cam should look BIGGER! Not smaller .. so in fact the a380 is shorter than the T7 ??? I had no idea but this pic shows us .. excellent shot !

Compared to the beautiful 773 in the back, the 380 looks short and stubby. Great shot tho!!!

Perfect, now we can see that the A380 is not so big when compared to the beautiful T7...in fact I'd say the T7 is longer...the A380 of course is fatter.

This is the club of the >70 metres-in-lenghth-planes. would be nice seeing aditionally an A340-600 and a 74 on this picture. just for optical comparison. By looking at the picture, I'm trying to imagine what a double-decker T7 would look like :-) However, best Airbus, best Boeing, best Mr.Chui / brgds (gp)

In fact B777-300 is a little bit longer than the A380.
A little comparison ( data from Boeing and Airbus website) :

B777-300 vs A380
length : 73.9m vs 73m
tail height : 18.5m vs 24.1m
wing span : 60.9m vs 79.8m
MTOW : 297 tonnes vs 560 tonnes

A380 is still bigger than the B777-300


Beautiful picture !

Wonderful photo, wonderful photographer, wonderful lens.
The 380 wing isn't drooping - that's just the shape of the trailing edge.

The timing and viewpoint are simply extraordinary, and what a brilliant day!

The Boeing 777 and the Airbus 380. "The Future has arrived"

BTW: Just look at that boat in the water, how tiny it is compared to the A380. Just another testament to the size of this beast
