View Full Version : A380 Cutaway - unusual addition!

29th Aug 2005, 14:57
Couldnt find this posted anywhere else in these forums - 'whoops' if it is!

Anyways, whilst having a clearout, I happened to find the Flight Collection cutaway of the A380-800 in an oldish magazine, and was having a good nose through, when something caught my eye. Not sure whether these come as standard on the A380, or if you have to pay extra, but has anybody else spotted the unusual addition to this awesome drawing?!

Interesting that whoever composed that graphic apparently felt those things on the wings were so insignificant they didn't deserve to be labeled... :suspect:

Feel free to print it up and colour it in to look like your favorite airline.........

Stay within the lines now. :ok:

Jerricho, mate, you're not supposed to post pages from yer ATC training manual without permission.

You'll notice that that picture is actually from the emergency section of the manual Darth.

Spot the obvious problem.

Well. the main gear may still be on it's way down, otherwise he'll be calling "final - 1 green :eek:"

Actually on a Beech 18 you got only one green if the wheels show's up :ok:

I hope you all like my drawing, It took only 10mins on a leg from LGW to AGP my Captain gave me 10/10 and said "it was very good, and really looks like the plane we're flying" Tomorrow we're flying back to LGW and he asked me to draw some trains on the flight back.

You'll have to label that one for us Mr Door. It's got more things than the one above *scratches head*

So...was it the Narrowing Aft cargo hold? The Upper deck bar? Or, the 5th engine that mysteriously floats just forward of the wing???:confused:

That three year old child dragging their teddy bear through first class - will he/she be a feature of every A380?

31st Aug 2005, 09:37
Well done,

Anyone noticed another similar thing?

Bar at the back of first class? At least I presume itīs a bar, not many seats though.

Is it the immigrant trying to find a way into the front wheel bay or bomb left on the desk behind the forward door?

Edited to say that I have just seen the landing gear comes flat pack!!! :ugh:
