    From a personal design aesthetics perspective this 747-8 looks nicer than the A380. I’m not sure what it is, but it might be the cockpit window placement?

    The A380’s cockpit is on the lower deck making for a large empty spot above. And, on take-off it seems to need more power. Yet, it’s impressive nonetheless.

    Then, the iconic 747 upper deck helps continue a tradition. And, of course, the cockpit up top allows the freighter version’s front loading thru the swing up nose door.

    Nice photos!
