AIRBUS A400M is likely to get airborne before the end of the year. AERBT mentions this as national newspaper editors are likely to flag the event confusing readers even more. The A400M is not a commercial aircraft but a large rear loading military transport built by Airbus and, as seems to be the norm these days, three years late. It is not unlike the Shorts Belfast of the 1960s which was also powered by four turboprop engines. Some 192 have been ordered by various air forces, although significantly South Africa has in recent weeks cancelled its order for eight. Assembly is at the EADS Seville plant. www.airbusmilitary.com
