It's cool you can see the 3rd set of wheels of the rear main landing gear turns as the turn radius tightens!

Nice shot that shows how truly ugly this plane is. Cool livery, though.

Great close up of landing gear;

Not the best "angle" for the fuselage I'm afraid.......

Worst paint scheme I have seen so far for A380!

Epic close up. What are those things open on the inside of the wing? Right next to the fuselage.

Neat, never seen the main gear trying to turn too! On the other hand you can see the size of this huge mean flying machine. Wonder if we will ever see a bigger commercial jet.

It's such a strange bird this A380, I cannot get used to it. CZ livery cannot match the Korean A380.

Have you noticed the inner left gear? The last wheel is like bent? Nice Pic!

Great angle that shows the profoundly unattractive beluga whale nose of the A380. However I must say this is the sharpest livery we've seen on her yet. Although the titles should be a bit larger, the paint looks great and it is a welcome departure from the boring, all-white schemes were used to seeing.

Could be a steer axle on the landing gear. That would help reduce a lot of tyre scrub.

I like the A380's looks but this picture really does show it's uglier side.
Great shot however, 5 stars.

Excellent shot of ugly plane...but amazing engineering! Look at the landing gear. And the last set of wheels can steer too (like in 777-300). No fear of birds at this airport. They will see this thing and fly away screaming.

Congrats to China for their very first A380. I can see that the back wheels of the three-wheel landing gear are steerable as well. T.B.

Good close-up. The A380 looks impressive seen from this angle.

GREAT paint job. Both wings are reflected in the nose reflection. Hey, what are those square things hanging down in front of the landing gear? They look like they are actually coming out of the main wing skin further foward than the gear, which would be unusual.

I had the fortune to fly this huge aircraft, just to see flex those wings. trust me if you haven´t been in it, you won´t understand the beauty of it

I believe those doors hanging off the wing are the pack outflow valve doors but I could be wrong. The livery is certainly elegant! Also evident is the body gear bogie steering system in action. Great photo.
