A380 LHR

Anyone know why there was an EK 380 being pulled into the BA hangars this morning?

Saw it driving past, curiosity kills me!

It was a BA/EK secret meeting held at the bar on the upper deck of said aircraft. A secret society was formed with sole purpose to make people from EY curious.

It's being prepared for potential lease to the US Government as Air Force 1(a).

If Trump wins on Tuesday he will travel in Air Force 1, but a second aircraft will need to accompany it that's large enough to carry his stupidity and the full extent of his ignorance.

I gather the main modifications will be structural upgrades to allow the required 80% increase in MTOW...

Trump has insulted most religions and cultures around the world so he won't be needing AF1 as no one will invite him to their country.

AF1 will be decommissioned and sent to a museum!

EK is selling all the 380's landing in LHR, repainting them then and there. When the hangar doors op, there will be no EK 380 inside.
This is just the first one!
Spread the word.
