Well, its destinations were in Asia and North America with Jo’burg thrown in during the winter months. Whatever demand still exists to those airports is easily satisfied with the remainder of their long haul fleet.

Nobody knows how the next couple of years are going to be, so perhaps the A380s may return unexpectedly. From my personal POV as a passenger, the A350 is every bit as nice, so the loss of the A380 is not actually that annoying.

Beautiful filmography (and the most beautiful modern fighter)

In other aviation news, Rolls Royce was selected to provide the new engines for the B52 fleet.

The RR F130 is based on their business jet engine, specifically the BR725 that powers the Gulfstream G650.

While I might not like the purpose of these machines, I admire the fact that it will now have a useful lifetime of possibly over 100 years.

I am going to throw this in here despite it seeming out of place.
