Airbus A400M
« on: January 28, 2013, 10:02:50 AM »
Seen flying overhead and transmitting full ADSB on 'My Flights' is Airbus 400M c/n 003 with test registration F-WWMS. Has anyone any further information on this aircraft such as a future registration/owner ?

EDIT : Mode S is 38481A and flight ID is AIB96MS.

All I know is that it is Airbus's 3rd prototype normally flight testing from Toulouse.  Saw it there in late Sept 2011  Not sure if it will find its way to an air arm afterwards.

Hi EK01

My understanding is that the first 6 are Airbus trails aircraft with c/n 007 due to be the first to go in to service with the French Airforce.  This was due to take place late last year but there have been engine problems which have delayed things somewhat.

Regards
