What Is The A400M Airlifter?

Thu Jul 20, 2006 11:57 pm

I just read a news report that the Airbus A400M Airlifter is on schedule. I searched the forum and couldn't find any information about this aircraft. Can anyone provide more information or pictures? Thanks

Try the military forum it's the heavy lift military transport aircraft from Airbus similar to a Hercules transporter.

No it is not. Close to being 2 years behind schedule. But lately that's SOP from EADS.
