11 years ago, the first super-jumbo jet, the A380, make its first flight successfully at Toulouse, France :) it was a giant leap in aviation history. The captain who flew that A380 was Claude Lelaie. Image
Claude Lelaie is an orange suit guy :)

Actually, UPS and FedEx has already cancel the a380 order. Instead, ANA (All Nippon Airways) and Iran Air has order on the a380 :)

The A380 is ahead of its time. With the resilient passenger traffic growth for times to come (reference from Airbus's Global Market Forecast), plus congested airports, the A380 could not be ignored.

By any chance if you have Instagram, please drop a follow on @rv_aviation02 and if you have Twitter, please drop a follow on @vhaq_aero. Appreciate that!

Thanks for the info Quan Vo. (Someone may forgot to update wikis :lol: )
With so many freighter options from Boeing, Airbus and specially Antonov, the cargo version will remain in dreams.
