LH441 A380 diverted from FRA to STR

This morning diverted from Frankfurt.
On Flight tracking it looks like after a go around at FRA.
Planespotters may now view the A380 visitor at Stuttgart.
Does anyone know why the diversion?

Re: Longest fuselage (proportional) length difference?

The CL600 to CRJ1000 huge stretch again says that rear engines may make for bigger stretches.
Any clever explanation why this is so? Is it so?

Trauha, your guesses were damn good!


Lovely information! Thanks.
Engines up on tail seems to enable longest stretch, but why?

Re: Longest fuselage (proportional) length difference?

731 to 739 is probably a 55% difference
the DC9-10 to MD90 is probably a 43% difference
The 747SP to 748 probably a 36% difference.

Are the 717 frames different to the DC9? So not describable as a DC9 stretch?

Re: Longest fuselage (proportional) length difference?

Aware of this is why I put the inverted commas around stretch: 'stretch'.
You are right - DIFFERENCE would have been a better word. :-)

Which fuselages have been shrunk? Is the 747 the only one?

Longest fuselage (proportional) length difference?

Is the DC9-10 -> MD90-30 (assuming these the shortest and longest variants) a longer proportional length difference
(and in absolute feet length terms),
than the original Boeing 737 -> 737-900?
Or is the longest 'stretch' maybe the 747 SP to the 747-800?

RE: Is The 787 More Quiet Than The A380 Both RR And GE

Get a decibel meter. I measure noise levels on every flight I take with a dB meter.
A lot of seats are subject to amounts of noise that would be illegal in a Scandinavian work place for instance.
