With flight-test activities with its first two prototype A400Ms progressing well, EADS has decided to extend MSN001's attendance at the Farnborough air show to four days.

The company had previously restricted its plans to displaying the A400M on only the first two days of the Farnborough show, with the transport to arrive immediately after participating in the Royal International Air Tattoo on 17 and 18 July.

But with the type having made a successful public debut at the Berlin air show in June (below) and discussions on a new contract ongoing with its seven European customer nations, EADS says MSN001 will now spend four days at Farnborough before returning to its flight-test activities from Toulouse, France.

The organisers of the 19-25 July Farnborough air show also list the Airbus Military C-295 as due to be on static display. On the commercial side, Airbus is listed as having committed to send an A380 and A330-200 freighter to the event.
