    The British really know how to make a educational and compelling documentary.

    mehh..better they don't see it. They would instantly sue Boeing, Airbus and all the aircraft manufactures for copyright infringement on there idea. The average American corporation will sue another company if theres money to be earned. I doubt the Wright Brothers are any exception.

    I have to say the queen of the sky is better looking than the A380.

    +AvGeek NZ - My thoughts exactly, with the caveat that the only decent looking thing about the A280 is the wing roots, tie-ins and the sweep looks elegant, but then you see the rest and go,...blah!What happened? She looked kinda good, 'til i looked up, then,...uh oh. 747 WAS and still IS excellence & elegance, and the FIRST double decker airplane -- as AB tried to claim with the A380. NOPE!

    CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT AN A-380 WAS?I heard that Airbus is refusing to repay Germany 1 billion Euros borrowed to develop the A-380, but I'm not sure what the A-380 was.

    I flew on this BA747 tail #GCIVX from Seattle to London right after this video was published in 2012. I flew on it October of 2012. Very Beautiful plane and very special knowing that I flew on this exact plane.

    I have to say, out of all the documentaries I've ever watched, this has to be one of the best ever.
