The very first Airbus A400M went on display in the Musée Aeroscopia in Toulouse on Thursday 16 July. The aircraft, known as Grizzly 1, joins a collection of other Airbus aircraft in the museum just outside Toulouse Blagnac airport.
It was this aircraft that performed the maiden A400M flight on 11 December 2009. It flew for the last time on 4 November 2012, acquiring only 1.448 flight hours in those three years of test flying. Airbus A400M test flights are now being done with two other company test aircraft.
