Description

This unique DVD focuses on the world-beating airliners produced by Airbus – the A300 series, the A320 family and the Airbus A330/340 family. Featuring much rare and previously unseen film material, Airbus – The Airliner Profiles includes coverage of the airliners’ design, production and assembly, rollouts and test flights, cockpit film, formation flying and sumptuous air-to-air footage of the aircraft in a wide variety of liveries.

Other highlights include a detailed look at the A320’s revolutionary ‘Fly By Wire’ technology with Chief Test Pilot William Wainwright, an aerospace engineer explaining the design philosophy behind the A330/A340 and coverage of how Airbus components get transported in spectacular style to the final assembly plant in Toulouse from all over Europe by giant road haulage, Super Guppys and Airbus’ own ‘Super Transporter’ fleet.

To bring the story of Airbus right up to date, this DVD also includes coverage of the hugely ambitious but troubled A380 ‘Super-Jumbo’ project and the battle to bring the twin deck leviathan into commercial service.
