They are not hosted anywhere that I know of, they were e-mailed to me. Oh well.

If anyone cares, they are of the A380's landing gear. I guess the landing gear on the A380 does not caster like those on the 747, and the outboard bogies bend, the tires scrub, and the pavement is torn up when the aircraft is turned sharply.

I wonder what would have happened had the aircraft been fully loaded.

LOL!

Shi**y French engineering. What a disaster.

I wonder how long it will take to change a few tires during a quick-turn at each airport?

I am in no way an A380 fan, but those pictures were from certification tests. IE, they did that on purpose.
