Is it true that a Airbus A300-600ST Super Transporter has been spotted at BNE Logistics? This a/c has a MTOW of over 340,000lb I heard. More info please.

I saw the SuperTransporter at the airshow and I can't believe that the thing flys. The thing is an aerodynamic masterpiece

Yes the Airbus Transporter was here in Brisbane. It was sitting on the International Freight Apron this morning (22/2/03) at about 10:30am with the freight doors open on the roof.

The Super Transporter was parked here in YBTL today (23 FEB 03). An incredible sight indeed.

Where was the camera when I needed it!

Believe the Beluga was delivering a full load of our new attack helicopters to YBBN.

All i could see while taxiing out on saturday from the international apron was the huge door standing up in the air.

cheers and beers:}
