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 :)

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.
