There she blows (almost): first ‘white whale’ BelugaXL sections in Toulouse
12 / 04 / 2017
The first large sections of Airbus’ next generation new "white whale" transport aircraft, the BelugaXL, have arrived at the aircraft final assembly facility in Toulouse.
The new oversize air transporters are based on the A330-200 freighter, with a large re-use of existing components and equipment. The first of five BelugaXLs will fly mid-2018 and enter into service in 2019.
