On 7th June, the 5 A400M aircraft (codename Grizzly) used for flight testing took off from Toulouse for a unique formation flight. This is the first time that the 5 aircraft have flown together. Some stunning pictures were taken before take-off and during the flight, including this photo of the planes flying over the Pyrenees. The flight tests requested for Type Certification are ongoing, with a Type Certificate expected for the summer period.
