Airbus A380

Two decks, the full length of the aircraft. The Airbus A380 is the largest capacity airliner ever built. Such is its size and capacity, airlines and terminals have had to build new facilities to cope with it.

This example was on a training flight which incorporated visits to several UK airports, including Prestwick where this photo was taken. Wing sections of the A380's much smaller relative, the A320, are constructed at BAE Systems, Prestwick.
