+ - Airbus A380, Logistics of transporting the parts->

An anonymous reader writes: From CNN.com: Airbus A380 parts are made across Europe and must be brought in for final assembly. Everything apart from the tail fin and the nose cone is far too big to fly to the final assembly line at the Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, southern France. So Airbus created a whole new method to move them. These key components are loaded onto specially designed ships that sail 2,000km in total across the continent to the delivery point at a harbor in Paulliac, 600km south of Paris. Many other parts are transported across the continent in small convoys. zu
