FINALLY !!!!


Does somebody know what are the differences between the first and the second prototype flying ? I mean, MTOW, engine thrust, fuel burn, programmed tests ?

I agree. It is about time. I read the initial certification schedule planned for 5 aircraft to complete 2500 hours of flight. Having a second airplane will help speed things along.
