Parked at the QF Jet Base and scheduled to operate QF31 this afternoon.
-The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine airliner—the largest passenger airliner in the world.
-It took seven years to develop at a cost of $8.9 billion. Each Airbus A380 costs over $300 million.
-First A380 went into service with Singapore Airlines in October 2007.
-It’s 237 ft. long (equal to two blue whales), 79 ft. high (five giraffes), has a 263-ft. wingspan (35 wedge-tail eagles), and weighs 1.3 million lbs. (165 elephants).
-The A380 has about 4 million parts produced by 1,500 companies from 30 countries.
-It has 330 miles of wiring, which would cover the distance between Frankfurt and Paris.
-It has a 40 percent higher takeoff weight than the 747-400, but it burns 12 percent less fuel per seat and it emits half the noise.
-The main deck on the A380 is 163 ft. long and the upper deck is 157 ft. long, each substantially longer than the distance covered by the Wright brothers in their first flight (120 ft.).
