    You mention in the video of how the A-380 is put together that the wings are from England!!!! Well you could not be more wrong they are from WALES. This is typical of Airbus, you treat us like dirt here in Wales we work hard for you and still we are not sure if we will be making wings for Airbus in the future, the way things are going you will make them in China. The Chinese will copy what Airbus are doing and in 20-30 years time they will make their own planes.
