One Big Bird

March 21st 2007

While flying on a plane yesterday, I read about the new Airbus A380.  It’s a super-jumbo plane that has a wingspan of 261 feet – that’s nearly the length of a football field. It’s eight stories tall and weighs 12 million pounds.
 
Comparing the super-jumbo to Charles Lindbergh’s ground-breaking flight in 1927, the Spirit of St. Louis weighed a mere 5,000 pounds.
 
It’s amazing to think something that big and heavy can get off the ground empty, let alone carrying passengers and their luggage.  It’s simply amazing.
