A chance encounter

Picture: Airspace user Zhukovsky

With more and more airlines retiring their A340s and just a handful taking delivery of their A380s this is likely to remain a rare sight, but here they are: an Airbus A340-300 and an Airbus A380 together in the same picture.

According to Airspace user Zhukovsky, who submitted us this image, the A340-300 is F-WWIA and is carrying testing pods and an composite accoustic panel demonstrator for the A350XWB, while the other aircraft is A380-800 F-WWAQ, A6-EED (MSN 111), soon to be delivered to Emirates (as you might have already guessed!).
