Airbus announce last A380 wings left factory today

Airbus said the last A380 wings left the factory today at 8:40am and are already on their journey by sea to France.

This marks the end of wing production for the giant airliner and they’ll be incorporated into the final Emirates aircraft for delivery in 2021.

The last delivery wasn’t expected to depart until May according to original reports, but it seems the end of the line has already been reached. They were manufactured at the Broughton plant in Flintshire, North Wales for the past 13 years.
