15 November 2010 News in brief

The A400M’s superior capabilities for paratroop operations were underscored by a successful parachute jump from the Grizzly 3 developmental aircraft, which occurred yesterday over the La Juliana drop-zone near Seville, Spain. Included in the ten-man team of parachutists were Airbus President and CEO Tom Enders and Bruno Delannoy, A400M Programme Manager at the OCCAR organisation – both of whom are accomplished skydivers.
