The no. 1 A400M has successfully completed its first electrical system power-on, marking another milestone toward the Airbus military airlifter's maiden flight. This activity took place at Station 40 on the final assembly line in Seville, Spain, and was followed by the A400M's transfer to Station 35 - where all of the on-board systems will be checked for compliance with design requirements, and data automatically recorded for later analysis and evaluation.
