Rare Photos. Yaris vs Airbus A380

While I was at Melbourne Airport waiting to come over to the USA I watched an A380 Airbus land on the runway and pull up to the gate next to mine. I got all excited and was hoping that we were going to fly on the new plane as I know the A380 flies from Melbourne to LA.

Turns out it was going to Sydney then onto LA, we took a 747. Anyway while the plane was there I noticed a white Yaris near it and took some photos. The Yaris is not even the size of one of the planes engines.

Hope you enjoy these.

I think the Yaris driver was scared of getting sucked up by the turbine

I think the Yaris is there to push the plane out of the gate.

You wouldn't want to be in Melbourne right now - they are having a heatwave and it is 40 plus degrees or 110 plus farenheit!

I've also spotted Hong Kong's airport using Yaris as getabout vehicles on the apron.

That's funny, when we landed in Münich earlier this month I thought I saw Yarii on the ramp; but they turned out to be Opels! Looked very similar...

Cool photos though, thanks for posting them!

Cheers! M2

Q: Why did the Yaris cross the runway?
A: An A380 was landing.
