First A380 flown in anger to be broken up for parts


Afaik, jack screws to control the elevator/horizontal stabilizer are common in big ass aircraft (like the 747)

Learned that bit from an episode of Mayday which covered the 747 crash in Afghanistan due to one of the armoured humvees sliding back and hindering it etc
