Would you like to fly in this plane? A380......A390...
Is the Airbus 390 still on the drawing board?
Is this prototype now under construction?
Would you fly in it this summer if it were in operation?
Lots of questions.
The next step in aviation history is about to become a reality.
I remember looking at the Jumbo, the Boeing 747, from the SFO terminal in 1970 as I was about to board a DC 8, another smaller chartered jet plane which is now obsolete. It took me from San Francisco to Bangor Maine and then on to Paris. A few days later I flew to Madrid for my Junior Year Abroad, a year long exchange program. This was the first of my many flights back and forth from California.
How could that NEW plane, the 747, ever get off the ground? Would I ever fly in one?
Well, I've been flying to the States in the JUMBO, and later the DC 10 and Airbus for almost 40 years. Those GIGANTIC planes, better known as the wide-bodies DID get off the ground. And now the aeronautic engineers think they can develop much bigger planes. It seems that the A380 is already with us and the A390 may not be far behind. We'll wait and see....if we ever fly in one.
