Jesus H, airbus are gonna be pissed about that, someones gonna get fired for that.I wonder did they paint the A380 for that event?

Isn't the paris airshow very important in terms of new business for airbus, can they fly a replacement?

It will still look impressive as a static display if they hide the bad bit.

Not really, it will now sit on the runway through the whole show and people can still walk around and admire it.

The wing damage has been covered up out of view. Airbus have already commandeered another A380 from Korean Airways to carry out fly pasts.

They now have two of these aircraft's hanging about at the show.

The building, steel cladding is expensive. The aircraft wing is only made of fibreglass and could be patched up easily enough.
