A380 Freighter and Other Random Talk

I know years back Airbus had plans on the cargo A380, but what happened to it? I haven’t heard about it recently. Are they still working on it or did they cancel it?

It’s been ditched. Production time is the main reason.

Ok, thanks.

I wanted one so much, too because it’s my only chance at seeing one regularly. My airport can’t handle passenger a380s, only cargo. 😢

Lucky, you already get to see them, I’m near SDF, where we get e145s (so giant😂). Occasionally at midnight (when I can’t see them) we get heavies from UPS.

How big are the UPS aircraft?

As far as I am aware it would also never have been efficient. Too big to load fully. 4 engines way to expansive. And I am not sure if Airbus can deliver a A380 without the main deck.

Anything mentioned in the UPS A330-200 is Unrealistic. 😂 (757, 767, a300 (no, not a330-200Fs 😂) and 744s

In Summer do they ever come when it’s light?

So, what I’m getting is it would be a380 2nd deck on stilts with wheels below on the stilts? That doesn’t seem safe (LOL 😂😂😂)

No, near Christmas sometimes they come when its light out though, but then it’s mostly chartered cargo 747s.
