Airbus A300F4-600 (F-GSTD)
HAWARDEN AIRPORT UK
I see them passing over nearly every day coming from Toulouse (France) towards Hamburg.
They are called Airbus A300-600ST Beluga.
What is it used for?
Try the wikipedia-pages and you will find all the information you need to know about this aircraft.
No matter what they're name is or what it's called....They're 1 weird lookin jet (thought I'd use nice words! Ha ha ha)!
they pick up the Airbus wings made at Hawarden they come in daily there are five of them, A bigger version is out 2018/2019.
I've seen once that, recorded by a television crue, that all those parts were moved by special transport during the night, crossing several crossroads and very difficult roadpoints.A very rare operation.
Great photo! I think the Boeing equivalent to this airplane is the Dreamlifter.
Had the chance to see a Beluga at Jackson MS (JAN) almost 12 years ago. It was quite the sight. It was delivering a mobile hospital sent from Germany a couple days after Hurricane Katrina.
