Massive superjumbo jetliner to debut

— 10:34 AM on January 17, 2005

This is pretty much in left field as far as news around here is concerned, but it's really cool. Airbus is about to unveil its massive A380 jetliner that will carry 555 passengers, or one-third more than the current champ, the 747. This thing has four aisles, two decks, four engines, and weighs 308 tons. I have to admit, I'm a little more excited about the prospects for Boeing's 7E7 Dreamliner, but either one should make long-distance travel more pleasant.
