The Airbus Defence and Space
A400M final assembly line (FAL) in Seville (Spain) has begun working on the
first A400M new generation airlifter for the German Air Force. With the arrival
of the fuselage for this aircraft, known as MSN18, all major structures of the
first of the 53 A400Ms for Germany
are now being assembled in the FAL. The German Air Force will take delivery of
its first A400M in November 2014.
