The new generation Airbus A400M transport aircraft ordered by the armed forces of Luxembourg made its maiden flight, marking a milestone in view of its delivery. The aircraft, known as MSN104, took off from Seville (Spain), where the final assembly line is located, on April 13 at 16:08 pm (CET) and then returned and landed 5 hours later.
The Luxembourg aircraft will be operated by the armed forces of Belgium and Luxembourg through a bi-national unit based in Belgium.
MSN104 is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2020.
