Airbus pulls plane from display

Plane maker Airbus said yesterday it was pulling one of its flagship double-decker A380s out of a flying display at the Paris Air Show, compounding a series of embarrassing hiccups for the EADS (EAD.PA) unit at this year's big-ticket industry event. The right-hand wing-tip of the A380, the world's largest jetliner with a wingspan of almost 80 metres (yards), “touched” a structure at the Le Bourget airport during ground manoeuvres.
