Just for the record, the airport could easily have handled the A380 if Airbus had wanted to land it there. The FAA has officially approved A380 operations on runways 150 feet wide which is what ICT has, and Runway 19R is long enough and the weight bearing capacity is adequate for an A380 that is operating at less than gross weight. Naturally, it shouldn’t be done too regularly in order to overstress the pavement. And, it would cause quite a disruption to other aircraft flight and ground operations.
The Antonov AN124 and its larger version routinely operate in Wichita hauling cargo and they are similar in size to the A380.
Airbus never asked the airport authority if the plane could land because it was on a tight flight schedule and they didn’t have time to stop in Wichita.
