That it would be, but still unique in its own right. Nice capture, but it looks a tad bit soft. Thanks for sharing.

Nice shot, but that is one ugly aircraft.

Wow, that thing flies? To paraphrase from classic literature, it looks like it's hanging in the air the same way that bricks don't.

Nice photo. I'd love to see one of these.

Isn't that used for transporting parts of the A380?

Morning Dude,

yes, it's used for transporting aircraft wings to final assembly plant. Not the A380 though, the wings are too big. Those have to be transported by sea and road !

Yeah, I can see it too, the focus isn't quite sharp enough. I've only just recently got the camera (400D) and hadn't read the instructions. This was one of my first shots with it. Now that I've read a little I might be able to take a better shot. I'll try again and compare...if I get the chance.

Hello Wullie;

Welcome to POTN...

At first I thought this was an old shot... I was surprised to see a Beluga still in the "old" colours... I thought they had all been re-painted in current Airbus house-colours... but obviously not!

Cheers;

Lee

Nice shot! That would be the perfect space ship for the next Aliens movie.

No the shot is less than two weeks old Lee. There is currently an all-white Beluga, but apart from that I think the others respect the Airbus colour scheme.
