Here’s the Beluga XL! I’m glad Airbus has a sense of humour!
(Picture from Airbus)
Is it based of a 330 now?
I think that is the main difference right?
It’s based off the 330-200
OMG…This is amazing 😂😂😂
The Beluga XL is based off of an Airbus A330- 200 according to Airbus
I’m actually digging it 😂
It honestly looks good and hilarious to say the least, pretty much the Beluga but XL… (A380’s Grandfather? XD)
LOL I love the paint job on it!
Isn’t that the original Beluga, not the new XL variant…?
Read this about the Beluga XL:
“BelugaXL is hardly recognizable as the outsized airlifter version of the Airbus A330-200 jetliner from which it is derived. “We have the A330 as a foundation,” said Bertrand George, head of the BelugaXL programme”
Also the wikipedia page also says the Beluga XL is based off the Airbus A330
“The Beluga XL, based on the Airbus A330 with similar modifications and dimensions, is being developed by Airbus to replace the type around 2020”
Oh stupid me
The paint job is spot on, couldn’t have been better ;)
That eye tho!! Starting to creep me out a little… 😂
HAHA! That face looks really nice though! XD
You and your "XD"s…
Anyways, that face kinda creeps me out!
Some real sense of humor they’ve got going there at Airbus 😂
Wonder what’s next?!
And @Delta319, i’ll be having nightmares of that face soon, thank you Airbus 😝
I’m known for KSJC and XD 😂👍
My title on the Plane and Pilot Forum used to be “KSJC XD”
Until it got changed to “Most Active Member - Thank You”
A happy Boeing 38M? 😂
I’d love to see one of those!
What @anon93248082 said is what I was thinking, I was talking about the XL
That face is absolutely creepy. 😦
