A380 & GE2700 When Are They Flying Together?

Fri May 13, 2005 5:06 am

If I am not lying to myself and I like to think I am not. The A380 flying right now is equipt with the RR trent 900.
Do anyone here know when the GE2700 is going to fly with the A380?

And What is the stage of the testing at Toulouse?

thank you

Switch the numbers, it's GP7200.

First test flight was in December with GE's flying testbed, certification is targeted for third quarter 2005, first flight on the A388 is set for November 2005, capped off with EIS for EK in October 2006.

Does anyone have any pics of the engine? Was it tested on GE's 747?
