Quoting RichardPrice (Reply 1):

Ages... January 2008. Wing to be delivered to Seville the end of this year.
There is an excellent article about Spanish aircraft manufacturing (mostly Airbus Spain and CASA) in Flight from a few weeks ago.

And another first is that the Beluga will also fly the wings from Filton to Seville.
But a rate of 28 a year (as per Flight) sounds like nothing compared to 15 or so a month in XFW. Must be a cushy job Big grin
