The A380 looks like an Octopus

This is the sad sad truth. Airbus’ inspiration comes from the squishest of the sea creatures.

Wow… Scary how virtually indistinguishable they are. The fuselage looks exactly the same as the massive blobby octopus head.

Octopuses are cool.
I earn three octopus-print tees.


My girlfriend says the A320 looks like a hamster ._.

Funny how two COMPLETELY different things in life can look alike. I always felt the 757-300 looked like a tall skinny teenager

Get a nose shot of the A380 in IF. The limitless angles makes it easier to see.

The thing that shocked me the most is knowing that @Laurens and @JDE1303 both found a girl who is crazy enough to be their girlfriend :|… ;)

Someone must be because we’ve both got girlfriends! ;)

They really are… I lost one because I said “I like aviation.”

Back on topic- I can sort of see a resemblance but not much of one.

@Robertdiaz123 is the analogy I agree with. The A380 looks more like a whale.
