There are big parts coming from UK as well.

The aircraft was being transported to an airport nearby. The airport is operated by a company providing with hangar facilities and long-term storage space for aircrafts out of use.

The standard operating procedure of Airbus is to move the fuselage sections by air. The carrying aircraft is Airbus A300-600ST Beluga. The fuselage arrives at the final assembly line in two parts. Thus, the transport most probably was not related to the production of Airbus but to service or reparation.

Perhaps the transport team wanted the navigator device to find the shortest road?

Some more information collected from local papers: The fuselage was on its last trip to be dismantled. The motorway could not be used because of tight toll booth gates. The convoy had faced similar problems in the the town of Auch previous day. The root cause is underestimated space needed at turning points. Thus, an amateurish planning of a special transport.

You'd think they have some experience with that: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itin%C..._Grand_Gabarit

I do not believe this case has anything to do with the Airbus company. More probably, some leasing or insurance company has sold the wreck to a scrapyard operator, and that one has accepted the cheapest transport bid.

for scrap, why not break down the fuselage into easier transport parts on-site? (like would be for... a building or bridge)

The fuselage is full of valuable spare parts to resell. The lifecycle of the components is not equal to the lifecycle of the aircraft.

sure, but not the fuselage itself

somewhat how like those high-volume Japanese auto "dismantlers" just cut the car in half after the dashboard and sell the whole front instead of taking out the engine and selling it seperately...

A car is not an aircraft. The key thing in the aircracft industry is the traceability of parts. Basically, the history of every bolt and nut must be known. This is achieved by taking service and dismantling actions in hangars part by part, not destroying the parts by cutting the fuselage by a chainsaw under open skies.

This schematic drawing about the head of the A350 perhaps tells that the walls of an aircraft are full of wires, pipes and devices. Do you really think it would be wise to destroy all this technology for the sake of easier transport?

It's all hole-filled like Gruyere cheese?

I don't know, but fondue was awesome.

I liked very much the HR Giger museum... I'd like to buy an Alien statue at the shop but the cheapest was 2900 CHF... :O

Have you wondered what happened to certain painting an old woman 'restored' back in 2012 with funny results? Don't worry, last Sunday returning from the forests of Soria province I decided to check it out. Now prepare for...

The return of Ecce Homo!


Its Wikipedia article got nominated for deletion a few days ago (on April fools' day) because 'it is better whited out'. I feel it was the wrong day for that, it should have got nominated on 28 December instead.

so they really left the botched restoration work in place? I thought they'd have employed proper restoration technicians to fix the issue.

Swiss Gruyère cheese doesn't have holes: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruy%C3%A8re_suisse

The French one have them: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gruy%C..._fran%C3%A7ais

The Swiss cheese with holes is the Emmentaler: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmental_cheese (and its clones: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emmental_%28homonymie%29)

Also in Italian something with holes is compared to the gruyère cheese, although the original one doesn't have holes.

As promised, I've returned to the bar where I drank a bottle of Pilsner Urquell and ordered one of Budejovicky a.k.a. Budweiser, the real one and not that American piss (a better descriptive word for that).
