Airbus A380 manufactured by Airbus S.A.S. is a two-level wide-body aircraft, this aircraft, supported by four engines to be able to load 850 passengers in a single class configuration or 555 passengers in a three-class configuration. These aircraft carry out the maiden flight on 27 April 2005 and has started its commercial flights in late 2007 after being postponed several times. This aircraft is also the commercial airplanes (passenger aircraft), the largest ever made .

When the first plane is made and taking off to fly aircraft size continue to be made even greater. In the 1950s Boeing produced 707 large. then in 1970 launched the Boeing 747 manufacturing and larger again. In 2006, a giant new A380 aircraft taking off.

The Airbus A380 was developed to address the growing problems associated with the density and the air traffic control system to start trouble with the large number of aircraft. The plane, which was originally called A3XX later renamed into A380 following the official launch of the program at the end of 2000. Once operational, this plane becomes super jumbo-jet aircraft have first full double-deck as well as the first competitor Boeing 747. Although many people argue that the industry aircraft not yet ready for such a giant plane, but Airbus believes that the company will earn a profit when the aircraft is increasingly needed in 2020. Furthermore, Airbus states there will be a potential need for this aircraft about 1,200 passenger aircraft and 300 for models transporter.

Airbus A380 Specs Although this plane has a very large size, the A380 airliner adopts conventional design with the fuselage cylinder that is wider than 747 A380 wing mounted low wear on the body with four machines along the stretch of wings. Landing gear consists of 22 wheels so that the load on each wheel is the same as the Boeing 747 and 777. This design makes A380 compatible with almost the entire runway at major airports. However, a very wide wingspans requires "taxiways" wider so that two A380 can be passed. Many airports also have to make the bridge "jetway" to accommodate additional number of passengers, and baggage handling systems must also be upgraded. The airport was good on the international track invest millions of dollars to do this upgrade to be ready if the A380 began operations. However, the delay of funding will be a major problem in all A380 operators.

One of the airlines that operate A380 is British Airways (BA) and they invited BBC Future to specifically explore and get into some parts of the plane were never completely disclosed to the passengers.
BA invitation is also to provide an opportunity for BBC Future to see firsthand inspection and checking the feasibility of flying a plane, that of the world's so-called checking 2A.

First of all before we checked, the A380 should be incorporated into the hangar and because of its size super large, hangar at Heathrow, in west London, had to be modified due to the height of 23 meters, the hangar is inaccessible A380.
Finally, the technician adds height to 26.5 meters hangar and it was actually still said to be tight.
"It took 18 months to modify two hangars at Heathrow to accommodate the A380," said Derek Cogswell, engineers British Airways.
Airbus, a consortium of European companies that produce A380, offers two types of engine configurations and purchased BA uses four Rolls-Royce Trent 900 turbofans.
The size of the engine cover so large that to open it must be done with the help of electricity, can not be done by hand manually.

Once in the plane, there was nothing extraordinary.
BA A380 divides into two levels or decks with the maximum number of passengers that can be transported 469 people.
If all the seats are categorized as economy class, the A380 operated by BA can be entered by 853 passengers.
In between these two levels or this cabin there is one thing that is never shown to the passengers, which is a special room contains 12 bunk beds used by the flight crew to rest, as they worked on these routes away with a travel time of 12 hours, as the London-Singapore.
A380 in the stomach also contained a computer network, of course, complete with various kinds of cables, which helps pilots operate aircraft.

For engineers, the A380 has been a challenge.
"The dimensions of this aircraft really big, everything is heavy, everything is high. If you are at the top of the tail, then you will be able to feel himself the magnitude of this aircraft, "said Cogswell.
And if you have the opportunity to fly with the A380, you will agree with this Cogswell
