GIFT: Airbus separates four of its aircraft, including two A380s that will join the museum Aéroscopia Bourget and Toulouse …
Airbus has announced his decision to donate four aircraft “to work towards safeguarding the aviation heritage.” This is not any aircraft retired but those who have written the history: the first A320 test aircraft, two of the four A380 ever built – the MSN2 and MSN4 their nicknames – and the A340-600 .
