You can imagine how fast the 747 captain would like to get to the runway and eventually beat it to London! Hey whale jet, you can run but you can't hide!

Great catch! But I just realized these are 2 completely different liveries! Look at the Kangaroo's head, the tail is cut off on the A380, look at the engines, the writing is different (look at the N on both planes) and, on the A380, there is no "Golden Lining" on the leading edge of every red painted part. Will the 747s be painted like this one day too?

You just cant beat the 2 coolest birds on the planet. And to get them both in the same shot!!! You did you have to pay to set this up? Lol. I still love the 747. The only thing that would make this better is when Boeing brings out its 747-8I.

Great shot.. im not so sure what you guy's are saying though.. the 380 looks really hot.. think there may be some jealousy creeping in?? its a cool looking bird, although the RR engines on the 744 do look class.. verdict: both stunning in their own way

The Illusion cheats our eyes when this 744 looks like it only had two engines. :)

The 747 is beautiful, the A380 isn't. But the A380 is more efficient, cleaner, quiet. More than 35 years are between these two great aircraft.
