March 20: The Airbus Military A400M final assembly line in Seville, Spain has begun working on the second serial production A400M, MSN8.
The integration of the wings and central wing-box for this aircraft began in February. The rest of the main components have arrived in Seville over the last few weeks: the vertical tailplane from Stade in Germany; the nose from Saint Nazaire in France; the horizontal tailplane from the nearby Tablada site and the fuselage from Bremen in Germany.
As with the first production aircraft MSN7, the French Air Force will receive this second aircraft in 2013.
