QANTAS's 8th A380 arrives in Toulouse

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
In the wee hours of January 15th in the South of France, an A380 made its way (in pieces) to the Airbus facility in Toulouse. If my math is correct, this is the 32nd structural delivery of a flying A380 to the Final Assembly Line. The aircraft will eventually be the 8th for QANTAS as VH-OQH (MSN050). In addition to the video below (taken by my colleague Max Kingsley-Jones), photographer BlackBear_31 captured the convoy winding through a French village. The convoy carried the horizontal stabilizer, wings, forward, center and aft fuselage for the super jumbo.
