Big Bang

To travel in an A380 is a pleasure  and, like driving an SUV, it’s usually the winner in a collision

It will need a little more than touch up paint. A number of friends have forwarded this asking how could something like this happen? Given pilot training requirements to drive the “Big Iron” these things are gratefully rare. It most certainly involved lack of vigilance by the pilot but I also believe that airport facilities and physical boundaries may not up to the challenge. The Airbus actually has a wingspan 50 feet longer than the mondo sized 747. 

My flight today is in a regional jet. I’ll have the seat belt tightened until I’m at the gate.
