"What does the CEG to MAD flight carry ?"
Over the next weeks I will try to find out the possible charge for the flights.
Until now I can say following: Flight from Bremen to Toulouse are wings for A350 (one wing) or A330 (one set). Flight from Bremen to Seville are wings for A400M or a fuselage for the A400M. Flight from Broughton/Chester (CEG) Hawarden Airport to Bremen are uncompleted wings (completed in Bremen)
Airbus would need French government to spend few bn EUR to make the Garonne river navigable up to TLS
There were for sure much worse spent taxpayers money ....
I am not sure that could be done, at least for a reasonable amount of investment. The issue was considered before the A380 was launched, the outcome being that the government built a new public road, which is subject to traffic restrictions whenever an A380 convoy is in process.
I did not know that. But it makes sense - there is a lot of discussion for building water way - Donau-Elbe - the guessing started in about 1880 and until know only every few years starts again and always the number rise dramatically. New road even for heavy and oversize traffic must have cost only marginal part to that.
