MSN007, the first French A400M, could fly on March 6th, in Seville (Spain). Talking to a few journalists, Airbus Military (AM) stated on February 15th that MSN007 could fly "on the beginning of march".
The first runs could already have been done, last week, on Seville runways.
Two French A400M are also in the Seville Final assembly line, to be delivrered before the end of the year.
The French DGA -French procurement chief- recently expressed his doubts about AM ability to deliver on-time the French A400M. According to AM, French Air Force is to be delivered at the end of may, or the beginning of june.
