The world's largest aircraft model has been unveiled at the approach to Heathrow. It is a replica of an Airbus A380 and weighs 45 tonnes. The model has a wingspan of 28.5 yards, it is 26.2 yards long and took 18 months to build. It will take the place of the model Concorde which previously stood in the space but has now been moved to the Brooklands Museum in Weybridge. The model Airbus is due to remain on the site until 2013.
