We fly the A400M

As a Friday treat, FG Club members can enjoy an early read of Mike Gerzanics’ excellent flight test report on the Airbus Military A400M, which is incidentally the cover feature for Flight International‘s main Paris air show edition. If you’re not already registered, it’s free and quick to do so, and well worth it.

It’s three months since we flew MSN6/”Grizzly 5″ from Toulouse Blagnac, and as our video report shows, we really put the European transport through its paces. We didn’t quite achieve the maximum 120˚ banked turn that some of you will have seen at air shows, but 105˚ still felt pretty sporty to me from the jump seat at the end of a 3g pull-up manoeuvre.

The A400M also proved to be pretty agile down low (sorry, but you’ll have to go to the report page to watch the video for now).
