The last three Airbus A380 wings left the Broughton Airbus plant in north Wales, UK, as end of the A380 production cycle is soon approaching.
The Broughton plant builds the wings for all Airbus planes.
Airbus expected to deliver the last A380 to Emirates in 2021, with only 6 more to be delivered.
The large wings have been transported from Broughton by barge on the River Dee to Mostyn Port before being shipped off to Toulouse in France for final assembly.
Wing Area: 843 Square Metres (2,766 Square Feet)
Wing Span: 79.8m (261 Feet 10 Inches)
Sweep, 25% of Chord: 33.5%
The A380 entered service with Singapore Airlines on 25 Oct, 2007 with a huge buzz about its impressive size and power.
The double-decker was certified to carry up to 853 passengers.
Despite its attractive capabilities, the production of A380 ceases only 13 years after its first commercial flight.
“The A380 will continue flying, with Airbus support, for decades to come…” says Airbus
