First time in Aviation History? Two Maiden flights on the same day

Sun Apr 02, 2017 9:46 am

April 1 saw two new plane types make their maiden flights, the 787-10 and the 319 NEO. Has this type of event ever happened in the past, I don't think so??...

Both flights actually happened on March 31st and the An-132D (military turboprop) also had its maiden flight on the same day

What's interesting is how little notice these things get on a.net these days.

The A319neo thread has all of four posts in it.

While the 787-10 thread has a few more posts, IIRC the roll-out didn't even get a mention on here until a day or two after it happened.

I guess we're too busy replacing the 757 a thousand times over to notice when actual planes reach a milestone.
I was raised by a cup of coffee.
