Airbus Military has for the first time flown five A400M Grizzly transports in formation over Toulouse on June 7.
The five aircraft involved, MSN1, 2, 3, 4 and 6, were crewed with Airbus Flight Test teams and no particular manoeuvres or tests were undertaken. Following the formation exercise, the different aircraft continued on their scheduled tests.
The first A400M is expected to be delivered by the end of the year.
