A400M undergoes latest cold weather tests


As the countdown to first customer delivery progresses, the Airbus Military A400M new generation airlifter has successfully passed a renewed series of cold weather tests in a production-representative configuration.

During a week-long deployment to Iqaluit, Canada, the flight test-team demonstrated the capability of equipment such as the cargo system and production-standard engines, which were not available during earlier tests in Sweden.

Tests conducted over 5 days and included engine runs after a 24-hour cold-soak of up to -32°C,

use of all the cargo bay equipment, taxying and a development flight.
