Nice video.

Why 340 seconds? If 340 seconds, the video would have been 5 mins and 40 seconds, but this video is only 1 min and 58

Boeing has done some of these for various 777 customers. I think they are a bit more interesting because the 777 doesn't arrive nearly as "pre-fabricated" as the A340.

Are they gonna make one for A380? That'd be interesting to watch.

First time I've seen the long version.

I downloaded the large version in no more than a few seconds and watched it 2/3 full screen in RealPlayer, looked amazing. That's just normal broadband. Check it out.

This video was available on the Airbus Website in the past. Before they redesigned.

I can't seem to find it now. All the videos seem to be for the A380 now.

I have been on the Airbus tour once and it seems like one of the angles are from the observation deck. Can anyone confirm this?

I was in Touluse in February 2000 does anyone know wich ariplanes was in the factory at that time? For what airlines. Just the day before we got to the factory Emirates had firmed up on the A380 and I was trying to flame the Airbus employees for launching a plane without orders. Talk about backfire from the guide  Smile

I have seen this video on my DVD "Die Airbus Flotte" which I bought last year, with some really nice pictures, as well as that sequence. It is really nice in full quality and full screen, but I'm not sure if it's the short or long version.

Best regards

Indeed, but I did found them on page 4 and 5 (Small versions)


Same video and others on airbus.com

while I don't know about the A340, in the National Geographic "documentary" about the A380, they stated that Airbus will be cranking out about one A380 per week......so that might give you a rough indication of the time it takes...

In real life it takes 14 weeks from start of assembly of the first major sections, ie wings to centre fuselage/centre wing box, to delivery to the customer.

That doesn't mean it will take only a week to make an A380  Wink Several are been build in parallel...

But I don't know the answer to Cadet57's question...
