I just watched the video of the successful landing of the new Airbus A380. Beautiful! This aircraft approaches the size of "The Spruce Goose", meaning it is monstrous!
Will you be comfortable flying on this airplane? And by this, I don't mean comfortable as in going to the massage parlors that will be onboard, I mean will you have any fear that this flying village will just be too attractive to the next Mohammed Atta?
Terrorists chose the Boeing 757/767 series because the flight decks of those airplanes are nearly identical and they both carried enough fuel to cause unimaginable damage when they were crashed. I fear the new Airbus A380 will be of interest to terrorists simply because of its size and its passenger load.
As an aside......Airbus needs to sell 250 of them to recoup their multi-billion dollar gamble on this airplane. Stay tuned to see if they can sell that many. (Boeing is betting they can't!)
