Raw Video: Airbus’ new ‘Sweet Home Alabama’

MOBILE, Alabama — We apologise. It was impossible to write this blog without at least one reference to Lynyrd Skynyrd, but at least we got it out of the way right at the top. (Airbus, in a show of heroic restraint, waited until the end of the public ceremony to play Alabama’s favourite tune.) Our full editorial coverage of the event in Mobile, Alabama, today will be posted shortly on the news page at Flightglobal.com, so stay tuned.
