- Dubai's Emirates Airline and the Dubai Miracle Garden have grown a life-size version of the Emirates A380.
- 200 people worked for 144,000 hours to create this beautiful beast.
Ever seen the majestic Emirates A380 aircraft blossom? Well, head to the Dubai Miracle Garden to witness that visual miracle.
Partnered by Dubai's flagship carrier Emirates Airline and the Dubai Miracle Garden, the life-size version of the Emirates A380 stands tall, and colourful.
It's touted to be the world's largest floral installation, with over 500,000 flowers and plants used to design and decorate it.
The aircraft's steel foundation weighs 50 tonnes, and the flowers add another 90 tonnes. Far lesser than the actual weight of an A380, which is 575 tonnes.
The one-minute-thirty-second video posted on Emirates Airline's official YouTube channel has got over 33,000 views in just two days.
The video shows that 200 people worked for 144,000 hours to create this beautiful beast.
In the video, Abdel Naser Rahhal, Vice Chairman of Cityland Group, says they have devised a unique water system to ensure the flowers are well hydrated.
The Dubai Miracle Gardens will open its door on November 22.
