    are you talking about the aircraft in front of the A380? Looks like an A340-600 and it's definitely not as big as the 380.. the 380 is ridiculous.

    yeah , had a vet at work tell me that the airbus 380 is a double decker built low. But at the 205 mar all you see is a wing that sits above the 380. I know no other aircraft is as big as the 380 but that other aircraft wing seems to sit higher then the airbus fuselage.

    I think its illusionary, the wing may be further fwd then a 2d picture shows.

    like i said earlier in the thread, it's an A340, and it is NOT bigger than the A380-- it's just the angle at which the picture was taken.

    u guys prob right...i knew the airbus 380 was the largest ...but I was wondering if that aircraft just had it wing sit higher or just right to create the illusion.
