A400M begins cold weather trials in Sweden
The second A400M development aircraft - Grizzly 2 - visited Kiruna in northern Sweden for four days of cold weather trials at the beginning of February.
The team experienced temperatures down to -21C and successfully achieved all the planned test points during a programme that focused on the powerplants. These tests followed preliminary cold weather work in Hamburg last December and will be followed by further tests in more extreme temperatures at Kiruna and other locations this
winter and next.
