Airbus A380


The hypersonic Airbus A350 XWB will transport passengers from London to Tokyo in a mere 2-hours at Mach 4, or 3,125mph. Unlike other aircraft, “the plane would be powered by biofuels made from seaweed – hydrogen and oxygen – therefore making it one of the world’s most eco-friendly aircraft.” Click here for the first picture in gallery.

Two models of the A380 are available for sale. The A380-800, the passenger model, is the largest passenger airliner in the world, superseding the Boeing 747
