I'm just a little suprised by Airbus rolling out the A340-600 ahead of the 500 series. I,for some reason was expecting to see the 500 in the air first.Can someone tell me where Airbus is in the prodution of the 340-500's? and when they may roll it out?.Also,will there be any competition between the A345 & Boeing's 777-200er's?. Thanks!

First A340-500 now in final assembly.

The first centre-section was ferried by Beluga from
St-Nazaire to the Toulouse final assembly line on
may 26. Wings to fuselage mating a few days later.
It will fly early 2002 commencing 6 months flight test
programme ahead of certification and first deliveries
in autumn 2002.
Testbed is c/n 394.
c/n 445 is for Air Canada.
c/n 457/471/485 are for Emirates.

Best regards,
