King Juan Carlos I of Spain has become the first head of state to fly in Airbus Military’s new-generation A400M military airlifter. With Airbus Chief Test Pilot Military Edward Strongman and Experimental Test Pilot Ignacio Lombo, the King of Spain made a local flight of some 40 minutes from the Torrejón base near Madrid. During the flight, the King – who is qualified as a military pilot – took control of the aircraft for 20 minutes at an altitude of around 10,000 ft. and performed a series of manoeuvres, including turns and a simulated delivery of humanitarian supplies.
