British Airways has released photos of the first Airbus A380, MSN95, painted in the airline’s red, white and blue livery this week. Here ius a little ‘useless’ information for you;
It took 24 painters at Airbus’ Hamburg hangar two weeks to complete using eight movable platforms up to 30 meters from the ground.
They applied five coats of red, white and blue gloss paint (2,300 litres of paint) covering an area of 3,500 square meters and with a total weight of the paint totalling 650kg.
