A400M performs first rough field tests

The Airbus Military A400M has completed its first set of unpaved runway tests at Cottbus-Drewitz airfield in Germany.

A400M Cottbus-Drewitz Mai 2012

Am 23. Mai 2012 absolvierte der A400M-Prototyp "Grizzly 2" Rollversuche auf der Grasbahn in Cottbus-Drewitz (Foto: Airbus Military).  

 

Last week, Grizzly 2 performed a series of ground runs on the grass surface including maximum-braked rejected take-offs.

During the tests, the left man gear sunk in, and though there was no damage, Airbus Military then brought the aircraft back to Toulouse. Analysis of the data and examination of the runway are now underway and the aircraft will return in due course for further trials, the company said today.
