AIRBUS A400 COMBAT Departure – Maneuver – FARNBOROUGH AIR SHOW 2018 The Airbus A400M Atlas is a european four – engine turpobrop military airplane. The aircraft is in production since 2013 and currently their are 72 airplanes flying. It was designed by Airbus Military and had the purpose to replace older aircrafts like the C-160 Transall and C-130 Hercules. The aircract can transport heavier loads than the C-130 Hercules (if it` s not aog somewhere on the ground) and it` s able to land on difficult landing strips. A total of 171 aircrafts have been ordered by eight nations and first aircraft was delivered in August 2013.
The shown Airbus A400 is operated by the RAF and can be seen performing the flying dispaly at the Farnborough Air Show 2018. Besides the LM-100J flying display the A400 was my favorite airshow because of its agility and these amazing maneuvers. At one point of the flying display the Airbus A400 dived straight in my camera lens. Awesome situation.
Thanks for watching, new videos every friday and tuesday.
