Revell Airbus A380 New Livery 1/144 Scale

On January 18, 2005, one of the most important milestones of the Airbus A380 program took place. The world's first end-to-end double-deck aircraft was officially shown to the world for the first time in a ceremony at the Jean Luc Lagardere final assembly hangar in Toulouse, France. This event was attended by more than 4,500 guests. The launch of the A380 also marked the introduction of Airbus' new color design, the first change since the A310. The A380 is the first aircraft to carry this new Airbus design. It reflects not only Airbus' current market presence, but also its future status as a leading aircraft manufacturer. The A380 landed at Blagnac (Toulouse International Airport, France) on April 27, 2005 at 14:23 local time (12:23 UTC) after successfully completing its first flight, which lasted 3 hours and 54 minutes. The A380 is scheduled to make its first passenger flights in 2006 when it enters service. The Airbus flagship for the 21st century took to the skies for its maiden flight weighing 421 metric tons - the highest takeoff weight ever for a commercial aircraft. During this maiden flight, all major test points were met, while it also marked the beginning of a longer test flight phase that will include five A380s. The scope and rigor of these ground and flight test programs will lead the A380 to a transition-free entry into service.
