Wikipedia, while a great resource should not be used as a single source. Check more accurate/appropriate sources too.

As BINDU correctly noted, it was cancelled back in 2009 when UPS and FedEx cancelled their orders. Airbus is still floating the idea, but it is essentially dead in the water. It is outperformed by the 777-200F and 747-8F, and will therefore never sell. And until it has actually been built we can't add the numbers. I won't count a future A380P2F conversion out though.

Second, wikipedia is written and updated by whoever bothers to do so. If nobody has updated the article since 2009, it won't be up to date ;)

We should only have aircraft in the database that have entered service. Since that is the year of availability in game. Since the A380F is not in service, it won't be offered in-game, whether it is officially cancelled or not.

Stephen, have you begun thinking about the 'price' for cargo? Because if planes fly 50 tonnes 2000 nm between two airports with 2 000 000 tonnes each at the same rate as passengers it would most likely not earn enough money.

Cargo is a little different to the way Passenger flows often work. There are typically one way flows between two points, with potentially nothing in the reverse direction. Often the quantities involved cannot fill an aircraft so they make extra stops to pick-up or drop-off cargo en-route. When you look at this kind of setup and then you look at AM's route system, it makes it a little more difficult to implement. I am considering how it can be done though since the recent work on putting together freighter aircraft information was carried out, which I am very grateful for.

Of course the aircraft listed here are not all cargo planes available. But until now this is the only ones I have found within a reasonable amount of research time.

Btw, what source(s) did you use for your passenger aircraft - especially the old ones?

Now that I've finished with some of
my airport updates for now, I think I might be able to help with this project . What are the aircraft we still need data for.

All but the ones listed in this thread:
http://stephenm.org/smfforum/index.php?topic=12165.0

Some of the listed aircraft do lack range data.
