Non-Airplane of the Day

A380 Mockup
Saw this picture on an airplane related website and wondered 'what the heck?' It sort of looks like an airplane, but it's all rusty. Steel rusts, but airplanes aren't made of steel, they are made of aluminum. And why is the tail fin sitting on four short pylons instead of being one with the fuselage like a normal airplane?

A little poking around reveals that it is a mockup of an Airbus A-380 used for training firefighters at the Dallas-Ft. Worth Airport. You can see it on Google Earth here.
