This is one of the proverbial PRICELESS aircraft, why, well AB was never able to set a price, it continues growing and growing with no end in sight. The sky is the limit (LIMAO).

Striking photo! But for we ordinary citizens, what is it, who makes it, is it a good airplane or not so good, etc? Thanks! (BTW, I wouldn't be able to afford one, I'm pretty sure.)

Nice catch.

This is an Airbus A400M. It's a horror story of European politics, technical overreach, and a desire NOT to buy C-17 because it was too capable and you might be expected to use it.
Great shot !!!

Here's commentary from a friend of a friend: "That’s a very nice shot of the A400M Atlas Military Transport, the sole product to date of Airbus Military Division. It’s had a chequered history as all European military projects do. Just getting UK France Germany Italy and Spain (plus bizarrely Luxembourg Turkey and Belgium) to agree a specification is hard enough and then you have to build it…. it needed an entirely new engine, the TP400, the most powerful turboprop in the West at about 11000hp (quite a lot less than the huge Russian engine from the 50s which powered the Tu114 and other large Soviet era aircraft which produce a claimed 15000….) difficulties with the TP4000 slowed the whole project and it was years late and hugely over budget. there is a long Wikipedia entry which recounts the tale of woe.. Apparently 170 odd have been ordered of which about 70 have been delivered. I went to a lecture by the RAF programme’s head some time ago when it appeared the Atlas could do everything the Air Force wanted brilliantly, but that was just before it entered service….
