Turkey has finally taken delivery of its first Airbus Defence & Space A400M airlifter after a prolonged period of negotiation.
The aircraft was formally accepted by Turkish officials at the Airbus facility in Seville, Spain on April 4, making Turkey the second operator of the A400M after France which took its first two deliveries last year.
The A400M will replace the C-160 Transall in Turkish service, and will initially be based at Kayseri air base for training.
