The Airbus A380 (ICAO: A388 / WAKE: HEAVY) is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner. Created in Second Life by LeZinc, the aircraft was based on the real-life A380 manufactured by Airbus.
Initially named Airbus A3XX, the real-life Airbus A380 is the world's largest passenger airliner; so much so that the airports from which it operates require upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market and made its first flight on 27 April 2005, entering commercial service in October 2007 with Singapore Airlines.
The A380's upper deck extends along the entire length of the fuselage, with a width equivalent to a wide-body aircraft. This gives the A380-800's cabin 478 square metres (5,145.1 sq ft) of usable floor space, 40% more than the next largest airliner, the Boeing 747-8, and provides seating for 525 people in a typical three-class configuration or up to 853 people in an all-economy class configuration. The A380-800 has a design range of 8,500 nautical miles (15,700 km), sufficient to fly nonstop from Dallas to Sydney, and a cruising speed of Mach 0.85 (about 900 km/h, 560 mph or 490 kn at cruising altitude).
