A380 Fuel Tanks Usage Order

Can anyone advise the order in which the fuel in the fuel tanks in an A380 is used please? My understanding is that the inner tanks empty first but I just wanted to check.

Planes With Trim Tank

Does anyone have a list of all common airliners with a trim tank in the horizontal stabilizer please?

I believe that the following planes do have:
- A380
- A350
- A340
- A330
- A310-300
- B747

I believe that the following planes do not have:
- A320
- B777

RE: Cutaway Diagram Of A380

Thanks for the suggestions. I have googled A380 cutaway and all possible alternatives (A380 cross section etc). None of the diagrams that come up show the gear retracted inside the wings. Likewise with the links from jetmech, which I had already studied. None show a diagram like the one I referred t...

A380 Etacs Camera Locations

RE: Cutaway Diagram Of A380

I have looked at a lot of YouTube videos and numerous photos from this website as well as Flickr etc. They give me a very good indication of the position of the undercarriage in the wings but I am still keen to get an accurate diagram.

Does anyone have a good cut-away diagram of an A380 showing the position of the retracted gear within the wings please? Something like the diagram in the 8th post at <i><a href="/aviation-forums/tech_ops/read.main/333428" target="_blank">A380 Wing High Efficiency Vs Mediocre Aspect Ratio</a></i> <fo...
