Endeavoring to expand its Dubai hub into a global gateway, Emirates Airlines ordered 32 additional Airbus A380 aircraft. German Chancellor, Angela Merkel held a PacMin 1/100 scale desktop model as a tribute to the USD$11.5 billion deal.
The Airbus A380 model proudly represents our First Class desktop series which is perfect for high-profile events where only the best will do.
I just wanted to thank Pacific Miniatures for creating the superb Emirates’ A380 model we displayed at Asian Aerospace 2002. The A380 model was displayed at our joint press conference on 2/28 announcing Emirates selection of the GP7200 engine for their fleet of 22 A380 aircraft. This was a momentous occasion for the Engine Alliance – it was the largest single order to date for the A380.
