A380 Flight Test Aircraft

Fri Jun 17, 2005 6:58 pm

What is the status of the other aircraft (other than MSN001) in the A380 flight test program: MSN004, MSN002, MSN007, MSN009?

AFAIK, there haven't been any new photos of MSN004 and MSN002 since late last year.

I have been asking this question for the past couple of day's with regard to
F-WXXL (see thread "F-WXXL What's the Latest?" & "2nd A380 When will it fly?"

It seems that no-one knows or nobody cares. It is a shame I got injured and got signed off work or would be able to find out.

There has to be somebody out there that knows what is going on.

None have been transfered to the "flightline" for ground testing? They all remain in hangars or the assembly hall?

Second A/C , MSN 004, is supposed to fly during the summer (end of?), it's written in the latest Air & Cosmos, including a planning for most of the development aircraft remaining...

So...journalists semm to know about it.
