The Airbus BelugaXL, which has been painted to look like a whale, recently made its maiden flight from Blagnac in the south of France. The plane made its debut in front of a crowd of over 10,000. This was the aircraft’s first test flight, and more will be held in the next ten months. The company plans to put the first of its BelugaXL into service next year.
Taking to Twitter, the official handle of the company tweeted several pictures as well as videos of the aircraft. According to CNBS, this is one of the largest aircraft in existence, and is six meters longer and one meter wider than its predecessor, that is the BelugaST transporter.
But despite its size, Twitterati focussed more on the shape of the plane. While some found the shape to be adorable and beautiful, others could not stop trolling the plane. Here are some of the reactions:
