Caption this photo: Airbus gives Embraer A380 model after wingtip incident #PAS11

Airbus says that chief executive Tom Enders gave his Embraer counterpart, Fred Curado, a model of an A380 as a “piece” offering after the wing of Airbus’s demonstration A380 hit Embrarer’s building at Le Bourget airport on the Sunday before the Paris air show. (See photos of the damage here.)

    Airbus exec: (through clenched teeth) Your companys name may be Embraer, but you did too good of a job EMBRAE-cing my plane!

    “The kids are going to love starting our camp fire with this…”

    Guess we should move into the construction business as our buildings hurt airbus more than our airplanes.

    Airbus and Embraer will cooperate in a
    new rotor wing VTOL variant of the A380.

    “This A380 wingtip just look like your Embraer company logo”

    Let me just snap the winglet off to make it look just like the real thing…

    I give you a model and you give me a half a million dollars to cover the repair bill of my A380 seems like fair exchange

    Enders: “Your building’s too close to the taxiway.”

    Curado: “Thanks for the tip.”
