| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |

Once again, a convoy of A380 sections has wound its way through the French Countryside on its way to the Airbus Factory in Toulouse. This week, the forward, aft and wing structures of MSN040 arrived for final assembly. The photo of its nose section was taken earlier today. The aircraft is destined to be F-HPJB, the second Airbus A380 for Air France. Earlier this month, MSN033, the first A380 for Air France made its first daylight appearance sporting a newly painted tail fin.
