Genius Tries To Sell Parts For Plane Not Used Yet

Some really smart guy tried to sell parts from an Airbus A380 superjumbo plane on eBay. That's all fine and dandy, except for a couple things:
  • Parts (even scrap) are under tight security control

  • The first A380 isn't going to be delivered to customers for another 2 years
So I don't think it's hard to pin it back to an inside job at the manufacturing plant, and I also don't think the guy is going to get many bids considering no one even HAS an A380 (so spare parts are pretty useless I think).
