Airbus 400M and the Mach Loop

Postby wkitty42 » Sat Jan 14, 2017 9:49 pm

Photographers capture Airbus A400M at low level through the Mach Loop for First Time

and some linked vids...

i had no clue that Airbus made anything other than passenger and cargo craft...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

These days they make more than aircraft too. ;) There is for example Airbus Defence and Space and Airbus Helicopters (formerly Eurocopter). Both are products of many mergers over the years.
