China Southern Airlines' first A380 is fitted with its tail

The impressive 122-square-metre vertical tail plane for China Southern Airlines’ initial A380 has been fitted to the aircraft on the Final Assembly Line at Airbus’ Toulouse, France facility. This installation process takes about eight hours at the assembly line’s Station 40, which is the position where A380 major sections – including the wings – are fitted together. The A380’s tail is almost equivalent in size to an A320 wing, and when joined to the fuselage its tip stands 24 metres from the ground.
