In the making: Airbus first BelugaXL

The no. 1 BelugaXL advances through its assembly process in an accelerated video clip from Airbus industrial facilities in the Toulouse, France region. Derived from the A330 jetliner, this airlifter is scheduled to enter service in mid-2019, carrying complete sections of Airbus aircraft from European production sites to the final assembly lines in France and Germany. Five BelugaXLs will succeed the existing five-aircraft A300-600ST fleet, keeping the Airbus production and assembly network operating at full capacity and supporting its production ramp-up. https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/events/BelugaXL-flight-tests.html
