    They do things big in the Gulf, and in the world of maintenance, repair and overhaul you cannot get bigger than an A380 hangar. Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies’ 46,200m2 (497,100ft2) fan-shaped Hangar 6 – which opened two years ago at its complex at the city’s international airport – can house three of the Airbus superjumbos. The development has doubled ADAT’s airframe maintenance capacity and is part of a major investment by parent Mubadala Aerospace that includes a new overhaul shop for the General Electric GEnx and Engine Alliance GP7200 engines, able to carry out up to 200 overhauls a year.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/IN-FOCUS-PICTURES-DUBAI-MRO-ADAT-392563/
