Germany Receives Second A400M from Airbus
(Source: Reuters; published Dec 2, 2015)
BERLIN --- The German Armed Forces took delivery of a second A400M military transport plane from Airbus in Seville on Wednesday, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Wednesday.

Another A400M plane is due to be delivered by the end of the year, a military source said, taking the total Germany will have received to three.

Germany has ordered 53 of the planes from Airbus but deliveries have been delayed as the world's second-biggest aerospace group grapples with production delays.

Five of the planes were due to be delivered to Germany this year, but it will now only receive two.
