Michael Largent Critique #2 29 Novmeber 2009 1. “The Airbus A380 Superjumbo Twin Deck.” 2009. 28 Nov. 2009. <http://www.aerospace-technology.com/projects/a380/> 2.

Unformatted text preview: 4. “The 555 seat Airbus A380-800, with a non-stop range of 8,000nm, was launched in December 2000.” (“The Airbus A380 Superjumbo Twin Deck”).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.
