A380 Insights
​Even after more than a decade in the air, the A380 still is an aircraft that breaks traditional conventions.  For instance did you know that unlike most jets that are steered using the nose wheel, the A380 is steered using the nose wheel AND the rear pair of wheels on the main gear (a camera helps the operating pilot to keep the aircraft on taxiways which sometimes only offer a few metres each side of the wheels)
​Although it has four engines, only the two inboard engines can reverse their thrust on landing.
​Each wing has 15 separate control surfaces which are computer controlled to maintain stability, especially during take off and landing.​ An average flight from Los Angles to Melbourne will see the aircraft load around 230 tonnes of fuel and 9 tonnes (9,000+ litres) of drinking water
​The temperature inside the engines will be around 700 degrees Celsius for the 14 hour flight while the engine oil pressure is nearly triple that of the engines that power the 747.
Each engine constantly sends data via satellite during the flight and the  modular design of the engines means that they can be quickly replaced.
