The first carbon-fibre horizontal stabiliser for the Airbus Military A400M airlifter has arrived at the EADS Casa final assembly line in San Pablo near Seville, Spain. The subassembly - the first part of the aircraft to reach the A400M line - was manufactured by EADS in Tablada, Spain, and will have structural tests before being installed on the first airframe.
