This is something you have never seen before! Four Airbus aircraft join up in formation to showcase the wide diversity of their products.
In a ground-breaking first, Airbus flies its A350 XWB, A400M, Eurofighter Typhoon and H160 together in a one-of-a-kind performance. This aeronautical achievement symbolizes the new united Airbus family. More than ever, we make it fly.
“Different aircraft, completely different performance and flight characteristics, the diversity of our portfolio – and we were able to bring this,” says Ignacio Lombo, Airbus DS Chief Test Pilot, highlighting the challenges behind creating the Family Flight video. – Airbus
