Nice to see it finally complete after years of seeing the pictures of what it would look like.

I assume this will be a modified A330?

Yep, still ugly.
I wish I could see one of these fly, but I don’t live in Europe. 🤧

Aren’t Belugas cargo planes?

Maybe even the beautiful A350 wings 🤔😱

IMO it is a whale because only whales can carry wings. But good for Airbus. And their new whale.👍
