Airbus officials announced their A380 aircraft will not be conducting flyovers at the Paris Air Show this week due to a small collision during ground maneuvers. The right hand wing-tip of the A380 flight test aircraft -- MSN 004 -- touched a structure near the taxiway ‘"Victor’" at Le Bourget airport yesterday and while Airbus personnel are inspecting the aircraft, company officials say MSN 004 will not perform its flying display this year at the Paris Air Show.
