Emirates ‘United for Wildlife’ message now visible at London Heathrow Airport roundabout

In Dubai Phil Blizzard reports that Emirates is on a mission to raise awareness about the threat of the illegal wildlife trade. A practice which poses to the very survival of some of the planet’s most endangered and iconic animals. The Dubai based airline has unveiled its fifth A380 emblazoned with special livery in support of ‘United for Wildlife’ - but this aircraft does not fly. In situ, at the traffic roundabout leading to London Heathrow airport the aircraft is a 1/3 size replica of the real thing.  This fascinating video, however, shows the painting of the ‘United for Wildlife’ livery onto a flying version of the Airbus A380.
