Just love the effect on the wings. Can anyone please explain to me what is that white "tape" (apologies if it has a technical name) on the wings and what is it used for? Are they sensors or data collection points?

Probably yes, the tape is used for masking the cables that are routed to the sensors above the wing

Wasn't the A400M named Atlas last year? Is the name Grizzly a remnant of the old name still in the a.net system or is there some policy about naming?
