I featured a small Airbus A380 on my blog after I’d been in France and snapped it in a shop window, and Alan Little commented, promising a picture of a bigger A380 made of granite. Here is that picture.
A380 googling revealed that there is another obvious-when-you-think-about-it way to think of the biggest passenger aircraft ever built. Instead of bragging about how many human sardines you can cram into it, why not convert one into the world’s most luxuriously huge flying home? (That’s not a carbon footprint. This is a carbon footprint.)
Trouble is, because the A380 is selling so slowly, airports are reluctant to lengthen their runways. Or maybe it’s the other way round.
It sounds like the owner of the A380 may be able to sympathize with Larry Ellison, the owner of the Rising Sun megayacht, it’s a shame to have the most fabulous creation in the world and have nowhere to park it.
