Can a huge aircraft be a publicity stunt? Airbus thought so, and now we have the beluga cargo plane. It was achieved on the one-off parts ferry for Airbus' factories. The bulbous craft now sports a smile and a pair of eyes that make it look like the whale. The BelugaXL will not be readily spotted since it is flying from factory to factory, but the paint job has already achieved international recognition. Not bad for generating news copy and a few gallons of paint. Kudos to Airbus.
