According to an actual article on the French Air Force website the second French A400M "Atlas" (MSN 8), recently named " City of Toulouse", flew last week from Orleans Air Base to Djibouti and back on an experimental mission - the first for this aircraft and its crew.
Carrying (only) eleven tons of cargo as well as 42 passengers, the 5.560 kilometers long mission was executed to initiate several experiments within flight.
