Super Guppy at Airbus facility in Hamburg facility

An Aero Spacelines Super Guppy parked at the Airbus facility in Hamburg Finkenwerder. In the early 1970s, four Super Guppies were used by Airbus Industrie to transport aeroplane parts from decentralised production facilities to the final assembly plant in Toulouse. The running joke was “Every Airbus is delivered on the wings of a Boeing!” They have since been replaced by the Airbus Beluga.
