    The A380 visited Brisbane a few months ago - QANTAS is buying some. The wings on this beast are surprisingly flexible - at cruise the wings are almost straight but coming in for landing they droop noticeably. Now that would be a challenge to model.

    The caption might be.... "I think the crew stairs need some work - the first step looks a bit high to me..."

    Regards,

    I think a caption would be ... "if you think this is big ... wait till you see the size of our bag of complimentary peanuts"

    The B-52's wings flexed 18 feet in flight! Almost hard to beleive then the B-2 came along and it's wings only flex 18 inches and it has the same wingspan.

    I love it dinsour............ adding from the pilot " so that wasn't a speed bump?"

    Anybody see the piece on the C-5A with/without the wing-damping flex system. Those suckers look like goose in flight, the wings flapped so much!

    I live right under the flight path to Filton, so bunked off work to see her do a fly-by yesterday on her way to Heathrow. Looks like a massive wing, with the fuselage as an afterthought! I think the stretched freight version will look more in proportion, but it was a very impressive sight nonetheless!

    Last time I bunked off work to watch an aeroplane, it was to see the last Concorde's last flight into Filton; Ah well, progress, I think they call it....
