Infographic for The World's Largest Passenger Aircraft, Airbus A380

About this infographic

This infographic does a great job in showing just how big the Airbus A380 is. Some interesting facts are visualized: the 3,100 square meter surface needs 3600 liters of paint, enough for Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel 97 times! Or how about the weight of 580 tonnes, the same as 165 elephants or 6373 pigs. Interesting environmental facts: the fuel consumption of world’s biggest passenger aircraft is 4 liters per passenger 100km, and it produces less than 75g of CO2 per passenger which is half of the European target for cars manufactured (in 2008).
