Technical feat: two A380s change colours during stepovers on their international maiden voyages

On 19 November last year in Dubai, a series of flight demonstrations lent an air of beauty to the promotional voyage of one of the two giants which had left Toulouse in October. At the 2005 Dubai Air Show, international buyers considered the Airbus MSN 004 to be particularly seductive. Indeed, they were able to see MSN 004 flying over the Dubai emirate displaying the colours of the national Emirates company in their full glory. This first world premiere, the gigantic metamorphosis of an A380 in different company colours, took place during the stopovers, and only 30 hours after leaving the Airbus premises in Toulouse, thanks to the ADHETEC team, creators of adhesive film designs for the aeronautic industry.
