MÃ©aulte delivers first A400M nose section
The first A400M nose section has been delivered by the Airbus' site in MÃ©aulte, France marking another important step in the A400M programme. The section was flown in the Beluga to Saint-Nazaire where it will be equipped. The design and assembly of this first nose section for a military aircraft has benefited from the experience, technologies and industrial processes developed for the Airbus aircraft family. MÃ©aulte is responsible for assembling the nose sections of all Airbus aircraft and has developed an ultra-precise method of spatial positioning using laser beam measurement to ensure perfect sealing and the best aerodynamics.
